Asylum Immigration Lawyer in Philadelphia

The attorneys at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. pride themselves on being a diverse, multicultural and multilingual firm. Our Philadelphia immigration lawyers assist our clients to file and present applications for political asylum, withholding of removal and protection under the Convention Against Torture. We represent our clients before the United States Immigration Court, or with the Department of Homeland Security, Citizenship and Immigrant Services (U.S.C.I.S.).

Our Philadelphia immigration attorneys maintain the latest information regarding the oppressive regimes and dangerous conditions that immigrants face in returning to their native countries. We help our clients to document dangerous country conditions, and arrange for expert witnesses to offer testimony when necessary and appropriate.

Common reasons for applying for political asylum include:

  • Past persecution or a well-founded fear of future persecution based upon race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group and/or political opinion;
  • Facing threat of unjust imprisonment and/or torture;
  • Danger from gang activity; and
  • Risk to family members due to laws on childbearing and other specific restrictions

The first step in gaining political asylum is for a client to find an immigration lawyer. The Philadelphia immigration attorneys of The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. have helped many refugees around the world from former Soviet bloc countries, African countries and various parts of Asia and Latin America. We recognize that clients seeking political asylum are often living in fear of being forced to return to their native countries. It is important to have a Philadelphia immigration attorney who can document the danger and explain the basis for the client's fear when presenting the case to a United States Immigration Judge or to an Asylum Officer with the Department of Homeland Security.
