Asylum Cases

We Have the Track Record to Help You Succeed

The experienced immigration lawyers of Nalbandian Law successfully handle political asylum cases every day for foreign nationals like you from dozens of countries worldwide. This has been our main area of expertise for nearly 15 years.

American asylum laws are designed to protect people who have fled their native country because they have been persecuted in the past or they fear they’ll be persecuted in the future.

Reasons for persecution by your native country can range from race and ethnicity to religion, political opinion, domestic violence, and sexual orientation, among other protected grounds.

Nalbandian Law can help you apply for asylum if you have been in the U.S. less than one year. Your chances of success are significantly higher if you apply for your asylum application within the one-year filing deadline.

However, we have also been able to win the most complex cases where the asylum applications were filed after the one-year deadline by showing that there were extraordinary or changed circumstances that led to the late filing.

Many Asylum Cases Never Have to Go to Court

Nalbandian Law’s legal team is led by Sassoun A. Nalbandian, a highly skilled attorney with nearly 15 years of immigration law experience. We are very proud of the fact that a very high percentage* of our asylum cases are granted directly through the asylum office without having to go to immigration court.

Our successful track record comes from the meticulous way we prepare your application:

  • First, we understand the kind of information immigration officials need to grant asylum
  • Second, we provide comprehensive, fact-based documentation that strongly supports and substantiates the reason you are requesting asylum.
  • Third, we file your asylum application in a timely manner.

If we help you win asylum without going to court, you’ll avoid being placed in court removal proceedings where your case could linger for several years.

Over 95%* of Asylum Cases Won in Immigration Court

Once again, our meticulous documentation for your asylum case application paves the way for our consistently high rate of success in immigration court. Every immigration judge has his/her unique requirements regarding the documentation and presentation of evidence for asylum cases.

That’s why we carefully follow your judge’s guidelines and meet those expectations. With our lawyer at your side, you can look forward to feeling confident and fully prepared on the day of your trial.
