Tooby’s Guide summarizes, in clear and concise terms, what criminal and immigration counsel need to do together in the defense of the criminal case, to protect the client’s immigration status.  This book explains the immigration world to criminal counsel in understandable terms.  Because the law in this area is changing rapidly, and because of the difficulty of being aware of all new developments in two evolving areas of law, counsel should view this book as a starting point for research, rather than its conclusion.  It is a summary of the main points covered in N. Tooby & J. Rollin, Criminal Defense of Immigrants (4th ed. 2007), the 2000-page comprehensive practice guide, and contains many cross-references for more information.
