Anderson & Kreiger LLP is pleased to announce that the firm, with the invaluable support of the Political Asylum/Immigration Representation (PAIR) Project, secured an important victory in a pro bono case on behalf of a family seeking asylum in the United States after escaping persecution in their home country.

The family fled Venezuela after being threatened by the ruling regime due to their support of an opposing political party.  Anderson & Kreiger learned about the case after the Asylum Office had denied the family’s application and referred the family for removal proceedings in Immigration Court.  Attorneys David Lyons, Kevin Batt, and Annie Lee successfully persuaded the Court to grant the family’s asylum application, ensuring they can rebuild their lives in the United States.

Anderson & Kreiger is committed to providing pro bono legal services to those most in need.  Our recent pro bono efforts have focused on the following areas:
