Experienced Immigration Attorney—Applications for Asylum in the United States

We Assist Immigrants in New York and Across the United States

In the United States, a certain number of foreign nationals can be granted asylum every year, either from within the country or from another country. The grounds for asylum include persecution based on political opinion, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity and exposure to domestic abuse or violence.  Asylum is a complicated process, though, not something you want to try to do on your own. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney can help you through the process.

At the law offices of Jamal Jbara, in Long Island City, New York, we provide clients with more than 20 years of experience in immigration matters, including applications for asylum. We are licensed to provide immigration counsel in all 50 states.

Since 1998, we have helped hundreds of immigrants successfully become lawful permanent residents or citizens of the United States. We are committed to building strong relationships with our clients, and will take the time to learn the details of your case, as well as your goals, so that we can take the right steps to get the outcome you want.

We understand the stress and anxiety that come with uncertainty, with not knowing whether you’ll get to stay in the United States. We will keep you fully involved and informed throughout the process, making certain we carefully explain the law and process, as well as your rights, options and chances of success. We won’t represent you if we don’t think we can get the outcome you want. We will help you understand the potential consequences of different strategies, so that you can make informed decisions about how you want to proceed.

We know from experience that the immigration laws often change. We work hard to stay current with all developments, including regulations and policies, so we know what to expect and can give you realistic and accurate counsel. We’ll give you an honest and thorough assessment of your case, telling you what you need to know, even if it’s not what you want to hear.
