Our dedicated team of immigration attorneys is committed to assisting individuals who are in fear of persecution or have experienced persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. With compassion, expertise, and unwavering dedication, we stand ready to guide you through the asylum process and fight for your right to safety and protection in the United States.

Understanding Asylum

Asylum is a form of protection available to individuals who have fled their home countries due to persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of one or more of the following protected grounds: race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. To be eligible for asylum, individuals must demonstrate that they have a credible fear of persecution if they were to return to their home country. Asylum seekers may apply for asylum affirmatively with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or defensively in immigration court if they are in removal proceedings.

Inderjit handled our immigration matter in reference to my parents. We approached him and found him extremely pleasant to work with. In addition to his knowledge of the law, he guided us very well throughout the process. I would recommend him very strongly to anyone in matter of immigration.
