"Such a Wonderful Human! I was in deportation process for seven years; my deportation/asylum court hearing was postponed several times. At this point, I contacted Chris. I told him my personal story- I was tortured in Syria and seeked asylum in the US. When I arrived in the US, I was detained for 48 days in Houston once I arrived. Chris was so moved by my experience, that offered to take my case for free! Chris gathered all the necessary documents from me and went through great efforts on my behalf. He looked up related events and updated my whole case. The night before my deportation/asylum hearing, we went over the entire folder as well as about 100 questions he had previously prepared. The hearing was initially estimated to last for about an hour by my previous Pro Bono attorney; in reality, the hearing lasted 3 hours. Chris asked me all the questions he had prepared to demonstrate the truth about my story. The prosecutor ended up having only a couple of questions; Chris interfered to explain her questions to me and make my answers more to the point and more helpful to my case. Chris had to undergo surgery a few days before the hearing and yet, he drove all the way to Houston, carried the entire 12 inch thick folder for about a 15 minutes walk, and didn’t tell me about this until the break in the middle of the hearing. His confidence before the hearing, as well as during, was unparalleled and impressive! He connected on a personal level and knew what to ask and how to tackle the case and he just did. Thanks to Chris, I am an asylee. I am not in immigration-status limbo anymore; I am able to thrive and continue my career as a pathologist in the US thanks to Chris. I am eternally thankful and grateful to him for his dedication, compassion, knowledge, and his kindness!"
