About me

As a Board Certified, Immigration Lawyer (Texas Board of Legal Specialization) with over 16 years of experience, my passion is immigration law.  As a son of Mexican immigrants, my mission is to help as many immigrants as possible to realize the American Dream.  I am here to defend the rights of those that do not have a voice.  My practice is focused on helping immigrants in deportation defense, or to obtain permanent residency or investor visas.  In addition, my firm will fight in any Immigration Court located throughout the United States to ensure the best solution possible for our clients that face the threat of deportation.  Included in D magazine's 2015 Dallas Best Lawyers.   Contact us today for an IMMEDIATE consultation.
