Fort Worth Haynes and Boone Lawyers Win Asylum for Pro Bono Client


FORT WORTH - A team of Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers has obtained full asylum for a Democratic Republic of Congo native, who was persecuted for promoting democracy in his home country.

The Haynes and Boone team was led by Fort Worth Associate Vinny Circelli and included Associate Kelli Walter and Summer Associate David Staab.

“This is a great victory for the trial team and a testament to the good we can do through the firm’s pro bono programs,” said Ian Peck, a partner at Haynes and Boone.

In July 2013, the Immigration Court granted the client full asylum and the right to remain in the United States.
