Protecting Individuals Seeking Asylee Status

If you face the threat of persecution in your home country, leaving your country may be your best immediate option. Receiving asylum in the United States may provide a long-term solution. As an asylee in the U.S., you will be able to remain legally in the country, secure a job and obtain government benefits.

Unfortunately, shifts in immigration policies and complex procedures make it difficult to receive asylee status. When you contact the Law Offices of Judith L. Wood, we make it our mission to help you avoid removal. Our principal asylum attorney, Judith L. Wood, has devoted her legal career to representing persecuted individuals and families.

Call our Los Angeles office at 213-680-7801 to talk to us about your immigration case.

Creating Compelling Arguments For Your Case

Ms. Wood has litigated cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and in other circuit courts across the country. Her appellate successes have changed court procedures and expanded legal protections for abused women. She leverages her 35 years of legal experience when she defends your rights.

Our team of asylum attorneys assists clients facing the threat of persecution as a result of:

  • Race
  • Nationality
  • Religious affiliation
  • Connection to a social group that has suffered government discrimination
  • Political leanings

We have obtained favorable results in affirmative asylum hearings and defense of asylum cases in immigration court. If your circumstances do not qualify you to seek this form of relief, we will pursue other legal options, such as filing for protection under the convention against torture or applying for withholding of removal.

Our lawyers tailor strong arguments using case law, testimony, and evidence of persecution and discrimination. Take the first step toward changing your status by contacting us today.
