Axinn Secures Asylum on Behalf of Pro Bono Client
December 22, 2023

Axinn has secured asylum on behalf of an Afghan man who worked in the democratic Afghan government’s National Directorate of Security (NDS). During his time with the NDS, he provided critical assistance to the U.S. Military. Due to his employment in the NDS and involvement with U.S. military operations, he was a Taliban target and thus in constant danger. When the Taliban took Kabul in August 2021, the man was forced to flee Afghanistan for his life. A team of Axinn attorneys prepared a legal brief, supporting factual documentation, and accompanied the man to an interview with asylum officers in October 2023. He is excited to see what life in the United States with his new asylee status has in store for him. The team included Claire Haws, Blake Pescatore, Aigerim Saudabayeva, Conner Dwinell, and Denise Plunkett.
