An individual can request asylum from the United States if that person is persecuted or has a well found fear of future persecution in their home country because of his or her political beliefs, religious beliefs, ethnicity, race, or social affiliations.

The Firm has sought and obtained asylum for clients from all over the world, including Iran, Iraq, China, Honduras, El Salvador, Vietnam, Mauritania, Somalia, Uganda, Senegal, Kenya, Cuba, India, Liberia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Pakistan. Maintaining up-to-date resources documenting instances of persecution throughout the world, the Firm uses these resources to supplement the testimony of its clients both in applications filed with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service and before the Immigration Judge in deportation hearings. Before each interview or hearing, an attorney fully prepares the client assembling all.
