PLEASE NOTE THAT CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DESCRIBED BELOW DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE UNDERTAKEN BY I.S. LAW FIRM, PLLC.
I.S. Law Firm secured a grant of asylum for our client, a political activist from Ethiopia who had been persecuted in his native country because of his political opinion and his opposition to Ethiopia’s current regime.
Ismail Shahtakhtinski, principal attorney at I.S. Law Firm, demonstrated to the satisfaction of the asylum office that our client had been targeted, arrested, physically harmed and threatened in Ethiopia. Moreover, we showed that our client had well-founded fear of persecution in the future if he was forced to return to Ethiopia.
We also provided overwhelming evidence, in the form of newspaper articles and reports by respected human rights organizations, that the Ethiopian government is notorious for censoring the internet, blocking oppositional websites, and spying on dissidents and members of the opposition. In addition, we showed that that Ethiopia is infamous for poor treatment of detainees, especially political prisoners. As a result, we were able to obtain asylum for our client.
It is crucial to have a good attorney prepare your document package when you file your papers with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), known as affirmative asylum application. Your chance of the success is considerably higher if you retain a competent and experienced asylum lawyer.

We collect country condition reports and submit detailed memorandums of law in support of every asylum petition we handle.
