As a Board Certified Immigration Attorney, I have personally handled hundreds of immigration hearings before the Immigration Court (Executive Office for Immigration Review) in  Dallas, Houston, New York, Boston, Pearsall, and San Antonio. Additionally, I have successfully represented clients with post-conviction criminal cases, such as Writs of Habeas Corpus and Motions to Reopen, which allows clients to set aside their criminal convictions where their fundamental constitutional rights have been violated.

It is my goal to offer affordable legal representation to immigrants in multiple areas of the law, including immigration, criminal, and the execution of foreign court judgments.

Immigration Attorney | Nov 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer.I strongly endorse Attorney Bray for all areas of immigration and criminal law- and most importantly, those cases in which the two intersect. Most impressive is his success with obtaining post-conviction relief, and I have referred clients to him for exactly this type of legal service. Attorney Bray finds creative, bold solutions and I have seen him win “unwinnable” cases. Highly recommended."
