      You can have legal representation with you during the interview. However, I would not suggest it unless you are in a situation where you meet the requirements of the law, but it is very close (e.g. time of physical presence) or complicated (e.g. if you were a communist or criminal) If you have a clear cut case, bringing a lawyer with you makes the adjudicator wonder what you are trying to hide. There are many creative ways for an adjudicator to delay and deny an eligible applicant.

        Um, no.

        Bringing a lawyer doesn't affect the adjudicator's impression on the application at all. Sometimes the lawyer can help to talk a nervous client down, or to remind a client about a document or issue that they have discussed before the interview. A lawyer often facilitates the interview, because the lawyer has been to the BCIS offices, may have met the adjudicator before, and knows the process.

        You don't need to bring a lawyer, but don't ever believe that BS that you shouldn't bring one because the government will hold it against you. That's a complete lie.

          I would agree with you on other types of interviews, but not on a straight-forward natz case. You go in. Take your 10 point history test. Answer no to all of the questions except the one about loving America. Sign your name and wait for the oath ceremony. Easy as cake. If you need legal advice and assistance, you should have it. But, if there is no reason, why? Why? Perhaps there is something in the A file...
          This may only apply to big district offices where they suspect everyone. You may be in a sub-office, the "Hi, Attorney Steve", "Hi, DOA Bob. How are the kids?" kind of office. In that case it would benefit you to have representation.
