When defense counsel’s work has concluded, and the best possible disposition – including conviction and sentence – has been achieved, defense counsel should send the defendant on his or her way armed with information and advice concerning what will happen to the client during and after service of the sentence, including what to expect from immigration authorities.  Defense counsel should, where appropriate, help the client arrange for representation during immigration proceedings by immigration counsel experienced in cases with criminal issues.  See § 3.43, supra.
