Pro Bono Client Obtains U.S. Citizenship

Paul, Weiss successfully represented a pro bono client from Sierra Leone in her application for United States citizenship. She was naturalized on August 26. The firm initially represented the client in a successful asylum application in 2004 after she fled Sierra Leone due to kidnapping and torture, and subsequently helped her obtain permanent residency in the U.S. in 2009.

The Paul, Weiss team included litigation associates Raj Borsellino and Katharine Fendler. Litigation partner Walter Rieman supervised the matter.
