In the Matter of Liaschenko

Gregory Patrick Sheehan

Case Conclusion Date:April 6, 2011

Practice Area:Immigration

Outcome:Judgment against client overturned on appeal.

The Cuban Constitution did not recognize her as a Cuban citizen because her parents were from another country. On that basis the US denied her application to adjust status.
