Pro Bono Client Fleeing Persecution in Zimbabwe Obtains Asylum

Paul, Weiss obtained asylum for a pro bono client from Zimbabwe who had been targeted based on her father's membership in an opposition group to President Robert Mugabe's regime. The case involved over three separate merits hearings and ended on December 21 with Immigration Judge Amiena Khan granting full relief for our client.

The case was supervised by Liza Velazquez and litigated by associates Nila Merola, Angelo Guisado and Kimberly Francis. The team was assisted by associates Tammy Wang and Luca Barone.
