    Join us as we welcome back US Immigration Lawyer Len Saunders for a virtual Lunch & Learn.  Len promises to tell us everything we need to know about US Border issues (ie admissibility, impact of Canadian criminal convictions, waivers, NEXUS etc).  Anyone who crosses the US Border, has clients with Border issues, or has questions surrounding the impact of criminal process in Canada affecting crossing into the US, will find this CPD informative and invaluable.


    Obtaining his BA at UBC and JD at Pepperdine and establishing The Immigration Law Firm in Blaine WA,  Len is a Canadian, British and Naturalized American citizen who specializes in helping clients maneuver the often complicated US immigration system.

    This event will qualify for 1 hour of CPD Credit.

    Please register here to obtain the Zoom invite once available.  While there is no cost for this event, if you are not an SBA Member or your membership has lapsed, we ask that you consider becoming a current Member.
