Joshua Charles Prever, Of Counsel, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius

"It is truly amazing what happens when people stand-up for each other and are given the opportunity to do the right thing. Our client, a young Eritrean man, fled his homeland after he was tortured for questioning the government’s policies of forced labor.  He came to America seeking protection, knowing that returning to Eritrea was tantamount to a death sentence.  After accepting this case from Americans for Immigrant Justice, I along with other lawyers from Morgan Lewis presented the evidence to the Court; and Immigration Judge Barry S. Chait agreed that returning our client to Eritrea was not an option and refused to order his removal.  He is now living with family in the Washington D.C. area, and has a second chance—really a first chance at life.  I am proud that I stood up for him, that I had the support of my firm, and that in the end we were all able to do the right thing and protect someone that needed it." - Joshua Charles Prever
