The roster of countries and social issues covered by the asylum cases handled by Morgan Lewis’ Philadelphia office over the past several years reads like the international section of a newspaper: Iraqi translator facing retribution for assisting U.S. forces; Indian man beaten for suspicion of homosexual tendencies; husband and wife from western Africa tortured in prison and subjected to female genital mutilation, respectively. Each client is seeking legal status in the United States based on a set of very specific requirements set out by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Each case presents unique issues, including a need to master the current country conditions, the most recent case law on the protected group status under which the client is applying for asylum and a gentle handling of clients who have often been exposed to psychologically and physically damaging conditions in their home countries.
