Asylum Granted for Political Activist

Attorney Mooradian's client, a middle-aged woman from Africa, recently received indefinite asylum status based on past persecution and her fear of future persecution in her country of origin.  The client had participated in a number of political activities for an opposition party in her country.  She had been fighting for democratic changes to the government.  As a result, she endured both psychological harm, as well as physical harm, at the hands of government actors. Mooradian was able to work with a medical expert to link the physical scarring that she had to the physical attack she endured; he was also able to review and submit medical evidence from the client's country of origin.

Following an interview at the Asylum Office, the client was granted asylum; she is now able to petition for her family members, who remain in harms way, to join her in the United States.
