§ 5.8 (F)

(F) Liabilities under federal law or regulations, including:
(1) Ineligibility for military service (including National Guard service, which, in turn, is the precondition for certain employments).
(2) Ineligibility for public office or employment.
(3) Liability to deportation and other immigration consequences if the defendant is an alien.
(G) Privately imposed sanctions:
(1) Higher insurance rates (particularly in traffic cases).
(2) Restrictions on employment, residence, admission to professions, admission to educational institutions, and so forth.
Of course, in addition to knowing each of the consequences that may follow conviction, counsel must undertake to calculate the likelihood of actual occurrence of each.
Sometimes, as with loss of employment or sex offender registration requirements (especially in this era of public posting of the information on the internet), some of these other collateral consequences can be extremely important to the client. Some people also take very seriously any restriction on the right to own or possess firearms, that can be forfeited on account of certain criminal convictions.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE OF IMMIGRANTS " COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES " RESTORATION OF RIGHTS AND STATUS AFTER CONVICTION
On Dec. 22, 2011, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) announced that the consequences of conviction " specific legal barriers, generalized discrimination, and social stigma " have become more numerous and severe, more public, and more permanent. The legal mechanisms relied on in the past to restore rights and status " pardon, expungement, certificates of good conduct " have atrophied or become ineffective, with the result that a significant percentage of the American public is permanently consigned to second class citizenship. As a result, it has created a Task Force on Restoration of Rights and Status After Conviction. For more information, see http://www.criminaljustice.org/criminaldefense.aspx?id=23270
