For many people, the United States is their refuge from persecution in their home country.  During our many years in practice, we have represented many individuals who seek protection based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.  We have extensive experience in researching country conditions, and have used expert witnesses when needed to help our clients.  It is important to document the individual situation as well as the general country conditions.  We represent people before the USCIS Asylum Office as well as before the immigration court.
