Legal Assistance With Asylum and Refugee Cases

Asylum has the highest rate of denial among all United States immigration petitions. It is difficult to meet the standard of proof required to obtain asylum, especially without an experienced lawyer’s assistance.

Attorney Chester J. Winkowski has over 20 years of experience with U.S. immigration law, including six years as a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services attorney. He is well-versed in complex regulations regarding asylum petitions, and has helped acheive asylum status for many deserving individuals and their families, including those with extremely difficult and complicated cases.

Important Facts About Asylum

Every aspect of U.S. immigration law, especially asylum, involves complex regulations and procedures. Before beginning the application process, applicants should know:

  • Individuals should file for asylum within one year of entering the U.S.
  • Applicants must prove a well-founded fear of persecution of themselves or their family.
  • Refugees from countries with well-known strife are not automatically granted asylum.

For these reasons and others, those seeking asylum should obtain the assistance of an experienced immigration attorney.
