In my immigration practice, I strive to approach every case as unique and tailor my legal services and strategies to my client’s specific needs and circumstances. I understand the worries and difficult challenges presented by the immigration process and the importance of being assisted by a professional who genuinely cares. I enjoy the diversity in each case and being able to meet and work with people from all over the world.

Permanent Resident Approved for Asylee
February 3, 2023 – After one year as an asylee, he or she can apply for an adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident. U.S. immigration law allows asylees to apply for an adjustment of status to lawful permanent residents after one year of being granted asylum.
In this case, we helped an asylee from Jamaica successfully receive approval for an adjustment of status. We represented this client for her initial affirmative asylum filing with USCIS, which was approved. Our client applied for an adjustment of status to obtain her permanent residency one year after receiving her asylee status.
