Why You Need an Asylum Attorney
People from all over the world seek refuge in the U.S. for a chance at a life without being persecuted for their race, religion, political views, and nationality. However, filing an asylum claim has a low chance of success in the United States.
Information compiled by the nonprofit data gathering organization Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse found that a record 71.6 percent of U.S. asylum cases were denied in fiscal year 2020—up from 54.6 percent four years earlier.
However, a 2019 report from the National Immigration Forum found that your chances of obtaining asylum are statistically five times higher if you have an attorney.
