"I would like to recommend to you the legal services of Belva Spiel. She has done many of our refugee claims and from a wide variety of country conditions. She is competent, careful and goes the extra mile for her client. I often tell our interns that she is the lawyer they should watch if they really want to see how the refugee determination process should work."
