Asylum & Refugee Attorney in Miami

Skilled & Experienced Professional Handling Asylum & Refugee Matters

U.S. law protects persons who are able to prove that they have a well-founded fear of violence, torture or other persecution in their country of origin on account of their political opinion, race, religion, nationality, or membership in what is known as a “particular social group,” which is a legal term to describe a group that is recognized in the country of origin. The group’s members must have this in common that they either cannot change or should not have to change.

U.S. law, through the Convention Against Torture, also protects persons fleeing torture at the hands of their country of origin’s government, even in cases where the feared torture is not on account of one of the five protected grounds mentioned above.

At FIGUEROA-CONTRERAS LAW GROUP, we believe that each human being deserves to live a life of security and dignity, one where you are not in danger of being oppressed, threatened, harmed, imprisoned or killed because of your particular political views, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our experienced asylum attorneys work hard to present your case in the most clear, persuasive and legally sound manner possible. We are committed to learning your story, researching your country’s conditions, obtaining and compiling compelling evidence, interviewing witnesses, and seeking out expert witnesses to testify on your behalf. We spend as much time as is necessary to prepare you to testify at your asylum interview or at your individual hearing in immigration court. FIGUEROA-CONTRERAS LAW GROUP is standing by your side each step of the way.
