With conflict spreading to every corner of the world, more and more people are seeking safety on U.S. soil. For people seeking relief from religious, political or social persecution in their native country, requesting asylum here is essential.

J. Bruce Weinman, Esq., has provided comprehensive immigration counseling to clients for more than 35 years. At our firm, we understand the challenges and concerns our clients face. We know the immigration system does not have your best interests in mind. We do and we will help our clients obtain green cards and visas to keep their families together.
At our law firm, we know the challenges our clients face. The U.S. immigration system is complex and often indifferent to your needs. We listen to our clients and provide personal service and aggressive representation.
In order to qualify for a grant of asylum, you must meet certain requirements, such as:
- You do not live in your native country
- You fear persecution or torture if you return to your country
- Due to your race, political opinion, nationality, religion or social group membership, you are at odds with your country’s government and affected by violence, war or criminal arrest
- You do not pose a threat of danger to the community here in the U.S.
Asylum offers many benefits for those who are accepted. People who are granted asylum can apply for permanent residency after one year and can then begin the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. In addition, they can bring their spouses and children to the U.S.
Attorney Weinman will assess each client’s situation and determine which options are most likely to produce successful results.
