The Federal Immigration Regulations, 8 C.F.R. 292, allow an attorney admitted in any state of U.S. territory to practice before the immigration agency in immigration matters.
The Supreme Court of the United Sates held in The Florida Bar v. Sperry, 373 U.S. 379 (1963) that the state of Florida cannot enjoin an activity as unlicensed practice of law if a federal rule or regulation allows a lawyer licensed in another state to engage in the activity.
In conclusion, as New York licensed attorney I am allowed to practice immigration law in Florida in compliance with federal regulations. My practice is limited to appearance before the immigration agency.
