I worked under Mr. Saffold's supervision at the Torture Abolition and Survivor Support Coalition in Washington DC. He has dedicated many pro-bono hours to asylum applicants and to training young immigration attorneys, in addition to his private practice. He is very detailed oriented and a smart practitioner. He is a great attorney and has a great record for winning cases.
