About Hedi

Learn Hedi’s areas of practice.

Hedi Framm-Anton has been practicing immigration law since 1984. She is passionate about justice and giving her clients a voice. 
She believes an immigration case is not completely finished until her client has acquired U.S. citizenship, and pushes hard for her clients to continue legalizing their status from asylum, permanent residence to the final process of being a full fledged member of American society.
Her primary interest and specialization is political asylum, in particular victims of severe trauma, be they men, women or children.  She is particularly skilled in eliciting stores of traumatic events, and building powerful testimonies of persecution in support of asylum applications. This is her passion.

She works in the heart of an immigrant neighborhood, at 24th and South Van Ness in San Francisco, California, where she has had her practice for the past thirty years.

She prides herself on honesty, credibility, and always telling her clients the truth about their legal situation. She does not promise what she cannot give, and will not mislead a client or allow him or her to believe their legal situation is an easy fix if it is not so.

She has tremendous respect and love for the most vulnerable of the immigrant population - those who come from poverty and poor education, with a dream of a better life in the United States.  She does everything possible to make this happen, because she genuinely cares.

She is completely fluent in Spanish and English.

Asylum services
I solicited the services of the lawyer Hedi who is an immigrant specialist lawyer. I called because I was in a very short deadline to introduce my case and she was very helpful even when she was full of clients, she opened an appointment in order to assist me. She and all the staff working in the office are very professional and helpful. I definitely recommend her professional services.

Very Competent caring lawyer.
Hedi demonstrated to be an extremely passionate, caring, straight forward and professional person and lawyer. She is very well known and connected, but her competence is what makes her strive. Her ability to connect with her clients and their stories makes a difference to the case, because it makes you feel welcomed. I had a different experience with a different lawyer and that is what Hedi made me feel when I spoke to her and made comparisons with the previous lawyer I spoke to. She made me feel like she cared about me and my problems.

Understanding and supportive
Since we met she’s been very empathic an explained us all the process Even though things are taking more time than expected and it is difficult to contact her, her team has been helpful and professional. People say she is well connected and known amongst fellow lawyers. Still waiting to get things sorted but I feel we have a good chance with her.
