It is at times like these that I sometimes wish I did not have as many incredible, intelligent and knowledgeable customers who are able to use the news to break information. Some lawyers advise anyone with a visa to return to the United States as soon as possible. I don’t know if it will end up being required. As a lawyer, it is increasingly important to remember that giving unsolicited advice (especially advice on things that have not yet happened) is frightening and a huge gamble.
