Nick Chavez is an excellent attorney. He and his staff were very easy to communicate with and made us feel like we were their only clients each time we called or visited the offices. Every time we left a message or sent an email the reply was very prompt.
His personal and specific attention to the details of our immigration case shows his integrity and professionalism. We had many questions and all were answered in detail and with kindness. We did not ever feel we were consuming too much time of him or his staff.
We searched for an attorney and his credentials met our criteria for whom we wanted. After our first appointment, we knew for sure he was the one to handle our immigration matter.
We highly recommend Mr. Chavez.

My family and I arrived in the U.S. in 1984 as refuges from Iran. Soon after our arrival, we hired an attorney. After working with him for five years, he was unsuccessful at helping us. Consequently, we hired a new attorney only to face yet another unsuccessful attempt gaining a resident status. Prior to working with Mr. Chavez, we went through six attorneys, as our case was extremely complicated. Even though several appeals had been made by our previous attorneys for a motion to reopen our case, they were always denied. We were being forced to do a voluntary deportation. Every year after the September 11th tragedy occurred, the immigration laws became stricter and our lives were impacted even more.
Due to our status, we were slowly losing all of our rights. Before September 11, we had no trouble working and never had to check in with immigration but after, our lives were never the same.
Due to these newly enforced laws we were under strict ICE supervision. We worked with the Chavez and Valko firm for a few years and through hard work, dedication, determination and devotion to our case, Mr. Chavez was able to reopen our case. At this point Mr. Gary Frost was the attorney handling our case.
One thing we can say about Mr. Frost is that he is very diligent and was always the most prepared person in the courtroom. He was ready for anything and was well respected by the judge. Both Mr. Chavez and Mr. Frost were honest and open about everything pertaining to our case. They were thorough in their explanations regarding the steps taken with our case. They are a very organized firm and keep clients posted on every detail of their case.
Because Mr. Chavez's perseverance and thanks to Mr. Frost's endless preparation of our case, we were grated our green cards after being in this country for over twenty five years.
What separates Mr. Chavez from our past attorney's is that he puts his heart into his work and is compassionate. He cares about his clients and he genuinely desires a happy ending just as much as we did. I recommend the Chavez and Valko Firm to anyone seeking legal residence. Having dealt with several other attorneys I can honestly say that they are the best!

Mr. Nick Chavez was a delight to work with. He has such a caring attitude and made me feel very comfortable about my case. He successfully handled my adjustment of status and most recently my U.S. citizenship. I have never felt the need to go to another immigration attorney since I met Mr. Chavez because I believe I have found the best immigration attorney in Dallas. Mr. Chavez is knowledgeable, professional and very, very caring. I would recommend him and his law firm to anyone who needs an immigration attorney or lawyer. I also want to mention how helpful and friendly his staff is, especially Daisy at the Fort Worth office. She always greats me with a smile on her face and is very delightful to talk to, not to mention how well she stays on top of your schedule and follows up with your appointments. Way to go, Daisy! I love you guys! Lisabeth M.

My wife and I believe that anyone needing a Green Card, Citizenship, or having any immigration issues should use Mr. Nick Chavez. Mr. Nick Chavez is the brightest and most professional attorney we've ever done business with. After being misguided and taken financial advantage of by another attorney, and my wife being denied citizenship after several years, we decided to try another attorney. We talked to several other attorneys that advised us not to pursue re-submitting for her citizenship. Then we met with Mr. Chavez. Unlike the other attorney's we spoke to, Mr. Chavez spoke with words of encouragement and hope. We retained him, and followed the course of action that he advised. In less than a year my wife was approved for her citizenship. There were no hidden fees, no delays, and no waiting to see or talk to Mr. Chavez when we had questions or concerns. He was always quick to respond, and was 100% accurate in all that he said. During the course of our professional relationship we have grown to deeply respect and admire Mr. Chavez. It doesn't matter who you are, or what country you are immigrating from, my wife and I highly recommend you use Mr. Chavez and the Chavez / Valko Law Firm for your immigration needs.

Fort Worth immigration lawyer Mr. Nick Chavez and his paralegal Cielo have done a great job with my husbands’ case. They truly know how to work as a team and they have made this process so easy for us. I can’t thank them enough for all their hard work and dedication. I’m still in shock about how fast the turnaround was; it only took 3 ½ months for my husbands’ process to finalize! This has given us an entire different level of security and now we can focus on our next goals. We will forever be grateful. My cousin Elizabeth had actually referred me to Chavez & Valko immigration firm because of her great experience and now I will be doing the same with anybody I know that needs immigration services. Thank you very much.

We are extremely grateful that we made the decision to hire your office Chavez& Valko. When dealing with immigration you cannot afford to make a mistake and hire someone that is not knowledgeable in the area, we am so glad that we did not make that mistake. Living in Florida we could not find an attorney that was knowledgeable in the expertise of 601 Waivers thru a friend we were referred to your office. Not residing in Dallas never had an impact on our communication and everything worked out smoothly. From the beginning to the end they have been very professional from the main attorney to the paralegal handling our case to the receptionist .
My husband "601 Waiver" was approved at Ciudad Juarez and we could not be anymore happier than we are. Thank you for reuniting our family. Keep up the good work! Many thanks from the Lopez family.
Estamos muy agradecidos de haber tomado la decision de contratar a su oficina de Chavez y Valko. Cuando se trata de lo de inmigracion no puede permitirse el lujo de cometer un error y contratar a alguien que no conozca el area, estoy muy contento de que no cometimos ese error. Vivir en la Florida no podimos encontrar un abogado que era conocedor de la experiencia de 601 Perdones, a traves de un amigo se nos remitio a su oficina. El no residir en Dallas no tuvo un impacto en nuestra comunicacion y todo salio bien. Desde el principio a fin, ha sido muy profesional del abogado principal de la manipulacion de paralegal nuestro caso a la recepcionista.
El "601 Perdon" de mi marido fue aprobado en Ciudad Juarez y no podriamos estar mos felices. Gracias por la reunificacion de nuestra familia. Keep up the good work! Muchas gracias departe de la familia Lopez.
