Should I contact Immigration again?

Northborough, MA |
Filed under: Political asylum

I filed for Asylum back in June 2012 in Boston. I did the finger prints and all in time. I haven't heard anything further from them. I sent them a letter once to inquire they said they don't have a time for interview yet. I asked my attorney to send a request that I can travel to Newark office on my own expense to have the interview. That was sent at the end of february and It's been 11/2 months now and no word.
Should I contact them again to ask about my case status?
