Philadelphia Asylum Lawyer
The attorneys and staff at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. pride themselves on being part of a diverse, multicultural, and multilingual firm. Our Philadelphia immigration attorneys provide assistance to our clients in filing and presenting 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 immigration lawyers keep up to date with the latest information regarding the oppressive regimes and dangerous conditions which 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 it proves 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 the 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 often live in fear of being forced to return to their native countries. It is critical 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.
