After a three-year-long legal battle, Banner Witcoff has successfully won asylum for a pro-bono client.
Our client escaped to the United States from Ethiopia, where they experienced violence based on their gender and political views. Further, there was a fear of returning based on the ongoing civil war in Ethiopia and reports of ethnic cleansing. Over the last several years, the firm assisted in preparing the initial asylum application, preparing a pre-hearing brief, and both preparing and representing the client for their hearing in immigration court. We are continuously honored and humbled to donate our time and resources to cases such as this one, and look forward to continuing to serve our local communities with our pro-bono efforts.
