I agree that you need to hire an immigration attorney experienced with asylum work. You also need to know that approval rates vary significantly by judge in New York, some information on the record of the different judges is available on-line.
If you cannot afford a lawyer, fees for asylum can be expensive because of the amount of work in preparing a good application, you will find a number of charities that may be able to provide you with a team of pro-bono lawyers from larger firms for free. If you want to tell me a little about the basis of your case I can give you the names of organizations/charities that might help you. Except for very particular types of cases involving certain social groupings my firm does not take asylum cases.
If you can afford apricots lawyer make sure to ask them about their record with asylum cases from your country with a similar basis of claim to yours and their knowledge of the different judges in New York.
I hope this helps!
