Attorney Mooradian's client, a gentleman from the Middle East, came to him after concern that he had failed the English reading and speaking portion of his citizenship exam. The client was given another opportunity to attend the exam, but he was concerned because he did not speak English. In addition, various life experiences made it difficult for the client to learn English.
Attorney Mooradian examined a medical exception form submitted by the client's treating doctor and noted a disconnect between the doctor's notes and the interpretation by the immigration agency, USCIS. Attorney Mooradian was able to communicate with both the doctor's office and USCIS in order to resolve the concern through negotiation. At the time of the client's interview, he was permitted to proceed with and interpreter, and his citizenship application was approved.
