An asylum seeker filed asylum in the summer of 2014 in Los Angeles. She hired a lawyer. But her lawyer filed a very simple application, without any supporting evidence and declaration. Last summer She hired another "lawyer" who claimed he could get her interview fast. After she paid $3000 that "lawyer" disappeared.
In early February of 2017, she moved to the Bay Area and hired us.
We requested her case from LA asylum office and 2 weeks later we got interview notice.
Upon reviewing her file, we found many problems. We had to redraft her declaration, submit missing evidence and prepare her for the interview.
Hard work paid off. Client's application was approved two weeks after the interview.
If her case were still in LA, she may have to wait for another 3 years for the interview. And with the condition of her file, she would certainly get a denial of her application.
