Walker Wilcox Client Wins Asylum

Walker Wilcox recently assisted a 22 year old Kosovo woman in successfully obtaining asylum in the United States.

The client, a Kosovarian immigrant, came to the United States due to her fears of persecution by the Kosovarian government, its citizens, and her family on account of her membership in a particular social group of Kosovarian gay woman.

As part of Walker Wilcox’s association with the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC), Walker Wilcox assisted the client in preparing her asylum application and represented the young woman at her Immigration Hearing. The client was granted asylum based upon the physical and mental persecution she received while in Kosovo from her father and others in society due to her sexual orientation.
