Asylum is a type of protection offered to refugees who are already in the U.S. and who fear persecution in their country of origin based on race, religion, political opinions, or membership in a particular social group. If you want to apply for asylum, an experienced immigration lawyer can guide you through the process and protect your rights.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
