The Law Office of Robert B. Jobe has successfully represented thousands of people, from all over the world, fleeing persecution on account of race, religion, nationality, political opinion, sexual orientation, and gender. Indeed, through its litigation efforts, our office has defined the contours of asylum law in the western United States. In a series of highly significant precedential decisions, our office established several important principles of law, including:
(1) in the absence of evidence showing a legitimate prosecutorial purpose, the courts must presume that a government's harassment of an individual is politically motivated;
(2) the presumption of future persecution that arises upon a showing of past persecution can be rebutted only by evidence of changed country conditions; and
(3) where the government is the persecutor, a court must presume that the applicant is at risk country-wide.
