The US immigration process is long, difficult and filled with open and hidden obstacles. Over a two year timeframe, Valdez Law guided us through every step of the way. Form after form, document after document both here in the US and in Honduras, they built a case file for our submittals. They took us through the USCIS submittal, the NVC submittal and finally the State Department Embassy interview. They were there every step of the way. They never failed to respond to an email or phone call in a timely manner. They never rescheduled an appointment. Even I got tired of asking questions, but they never got tired of answering them. Special mention has to go out to France's, Clarissa and of course, "Mr. Robert".
In the end any real review should answer the question: "Would I use Valdez Law in the future?"
The answer: "Absolutely!"

It was my first experience with attorney and I am so pleased with result. Frances, Clarissa and Roberto did a great job! After first consultation Frances told me that our case wasn't easy and we should work hard on it. She is very honest and will not tell you what you want to hear, Frances will tell you the truth. Now I can see why Frances was highly recommended to me.
Clarissa (paralegal) was very patient! She explained me every little detail and was very supportive.
Thank you again!

My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about Frances Valdez and her firm. After a bad experience with a former immigration lawyer, I was hesitant to hire a new attorney; however, after reading about the firm's activism in the community, I felt they would be the best bet for our immigration case- and I was right! They were able to get my husband's 601 and 212 approved- something that another attorney told me would be impossible for a Honduras cases. The staff at FValdez truly care about their clients and are very good about communicating. Thanks to their handwork and dedication, I was reunited with my husband this past Saturday after two years of separation due to his deportation. Thank you Frances, Clarissa and Roberto!
* Frances Valdez was recommended by an ICE employee who is friends with a friend of mine, so that speak volumes of the firms respectability!

Frances is a great advocate for her clients because of her commitment to their success. She obtains positive results and she is always willing to collaborate with colleagues and clients on finding new strategies. I highly recommend Frances.
