Present Tennessee representations are completely dedicated to U.S. Federal Immigration and Naturalization cases.

Previous California representations were concentrated on U.S. Federal Immigration and Naturalization cases (with criminal defense to resolve in state matters).

Mrs. Lopez's daily focus is fighting for the legal rights of immigration clients involving deportation, removal proceedings, and asylum with an array of naturalization concerns that stem from people locally, and all over the planet. She and her staff work tirelessly on behalf of each and every client to acheive the results they want and deserve. Valerie clearly understands the impact a immigration story has on a family and referrals are a reflection of her numerous legal accomplishments.

Our firms motto is "Client Centered + Client Driven"

Mrs. Lopez was a senior associate at an established Los Angeles criminal defense firm.  She is a graduate of Georgetown University and Pepperdine School of Law.  Mrs. Lopez also served as an adjunct law professor at Pierce College, Chaffey College, and Los Angeles Mission College.  She served as legal council on the Board of Directors of Hostel International, and is a member of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, American Immigration Lawyers Association, Federal Bar Association, National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, Americans for Safe Access and the National Association of Criminal defense Lawyers.

Great Resource For Immigration Services
Valerie and Brian were absolutely wonderful in helping my husband obtain a green card. The process was lengthy and detailed, and involved multiple steps including applying for advanced parole, filing petitions and several documents. However, Valerie and Brian were very straight-forward from our initial meeting and were always communicative and answered our questions promptly and in depth. They were also very patient and understanding, which was very helpful during a stressful time. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to obtain immigration services.

Best immigration lawyer out there
We gave Valerie and Brian a try and it was the best decision we made. They were honest from the beggining if they can not help you they will honestly tell you not like others that are hungry. We are so satisfied with the service and the process it was a piece of cake and they give you straight up instructions for everything and they answer the phone and emails fast and is they can not get to you right away they will inform you that they will get to you as soon as possible but great with communications thank you

Valerie's professionalism, prompt responsiveness, and meticulous attention to detail truly set her apart. Her in-depth knowledge of immigration law made the process smooth and stress-free. What stands out even more is her genuine care for her clients' well-being. I strongly recommend her to anyone in need of immigration assistance – she's simply the best! I must also give a shout-out to Brian Conover, who played an instrumental role alongside Valerie Lopez in our immigration journey. His diligent efforts in ensuring that all necessary documents were submitted and his consistent communication regarding next steps and expectations were truly commendable. Brian and Valerie’s dedication, seamless teamwork, and support greatly contributed to the positive outcome of our immigration journey. I am immensely grateful for their expertise and care throughout this significant chapter in our lives. Thank you Valerie and Brian.

Immigration/Green Card
My now wife and I used this Law Office to assist us in bringing my fiance to the U.S. and to get her approved for a permanent residency card (green card). The experience was entirely positive and I would recommend this law office for immigration services. Ms. Lopez and her office were super responsive to any and all questions we had. They navigated the difficult immigration process seamlessly for us and we were approved as quickly as possible with no major problems. If you are considering bringing a fiance to the U.S. to marry, I would strongly suggest you hire an attorney and Ms. Lopez would be my recommendation.

A rare find
Honestly I don't know where to start. Law Office of Valerie Lopez is truly one of a kind immigration law firm! They are extremely professional, caring, knowledgeable very transparent, always available and most of all they care so much about getting your needs meet. They explained ever single step in fine details. With saying that I have experience certain law firms that takes your money and you never hear from them not even one single update. With this law firm they will call, email and even text you with reminders and updates that pertains to your case. They will never be forgotten. Hands down I would highly recommend this law firm over any. You WILL NOT be disappointed. Thank you Valerie and Brain for all the hard work you two have done for us!! We could never thank ya'll enough!! Honestly we need more people like this willing to help people.

Amazing service and experience - Highly Recommend.
My wife and I were searching for a good immigration lawyer after having some difficulties getting a previously lawyer we hired to start working on our case. After a bit of a hostile experience with the other lawyer, which we won't get into, my wife was able to find Valerie. I was lucky she did. Valerie was intelligent and responsive. They worked on our case in a timely manner while also being available to answer our specific questions regarding our case. Bryan was always highly responsive to us and helped direct us throughout this process. I just received my green card this past week and look forward to working with them in the future with my Citizenship and green card renewal.
