Latino Law Caucus Sheds Light "Notarios"

MOSCOW, ID - Individuals and organizations billing themselves as “notarios publicos” are misrepresenting themselves and their clients.

The notarios, who lack credentials to legally practice law, promise “notary” services to recently arrived immigrants, but instead provide expensive and potentially harmful “representation.” Their would-be “clients” are vulnerable to confusion because some “notary” services in other countries are beyond the functions of “notaries public” in the United States.

To inform students, faculty, the Latino community and the community at large about notarios, and the potentially damaging impacts of services undertaken by unqualified or unlicensed persons, the University of Idaho's Latino Law Caucus offers a panel discussion, titled “The Unauthorized Practice of Law: The Effect of Notarios on the Latino Community,” tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the College of Law on the Moscow campus.

Panel speakers will include Monica Salazar of Catholic Charities of Idaho; Ricardo Pineda, Mexican Consul to Idaho; and University of Idaho College of law Dean Don Burnett.

Salazar, a law graduate from the University of California-Hastings, is currently the only legal aid immigration attorney in the State of Idaho working for the Immigration Legal Services Program for Catholic Charities of Idaho in Nampa. The program helps immigrants with a variety of cases, provides community education on issues impacting the community, and conducts citizenship classes, among several other projects.

Pineda, a former Deputy Consul-General at the Consulate of Mexico in San Diego, also has served as the political and border advisor to the Mexican Embassy in Washington, DC. In Idaho, Pineda and the Consulate also facilitate trade and economic development between Idaho and Mexico, promoting cultural exchanges and education, and helping Mexicans with their travel documents. The Consul also assists Mexicans living in Montana.
