It is not improper for an attorney to accept at face value the representation of an alien client that said client's marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident is bona fide unless the attorney knows or, in the exercise of ordinary diligence upon reasonable inquiry during the attorney/client relationship, the attorney should know of information to the contrary.
