Maria Blacque-Belair

Executive Director, Refugee and Immigrant Fund (RIF) Asylum Support

Angela offers excellent asylum legal consultations for so many of our clients and fills out asylum applications in a timely manner. She regularly meets with our clients on a one-to-one basis to assess their asylum case and provides important legal advice, such as what evidence they should gather. She is kind-hearted and always patient.  She also works very quickly, so our clients are able to make very important legal deadlines. RIF clients rave about her professionalism, commitment, and compassion. We are eternally grateful to know someone like Angela and we hope we can continue working with her in the future. 



I consulted Angela for my immigration case last month. Even though we are located in different countries and different time zones (Manila and New York), our session went very well. Angela provided in-depth analysis and thorough explanation of the scenarios available for my case. In the end, she provided her sound recommendations. During my session with her, I felt her willingness and drive to help people with their concerns and problems. This trait is what great lawyers are made of.



I was petitioning for my wife and we were looking for a lawyer that we could trust. After meeting to explain our situation, Amir showed us the best combination of professionalism, efficiency and personal care in taking our case. He was thorough, understanding, and made sure we were very prepared and well-informed every step of the way. He treated us like family so we could protect ours.



I consulted with Angela at her office and I’m really satisfied about her service and that of her partner Amir. They are very professional.



I was initially linked to Amir through my brother’s friend in 2015. I was amazed by the great job he did by getting all the proof we needed to accomplish our target of applying for asylum. When the time for my interview began to approach at the end of 2017, he introduced me to his new partner Angela whom has been beyond all expectation. These two know what they are doing. They will give the best advice and will not omit any paper work that could jeopardize your chances. For the service, the kindness and the modesty they showed from day one until the end- it's priceless.
