I have been representing clients in immigration matters since my days as an associate at a small Houston law firm. By the time I opened my own law office in 1983, my immigration practice was growing rapidly, and within ten years all but a few of my cases were in this field. I have seen many changes in immigration law over the past three decades, some for the better, some not, but what has never wavered has been my dedication and commitment to my clients. I have made it a hallmark of my practice to render personalized service to each and every client. My team and I take great pride not only in the successes we have achieved over the years, but most importantly in the differences we have made in the lives of those we have represented. Our expertise extends from temporary work visas, to permanent residence through both employment and familial relationships,through the defense of individuals in removal proceedings, especially those seeking protection from human rights abuses in their home countries. Whatever your immigration needs, we look forward to being of assistance to you.

A Nice, convenient lawyer
He's a nice lawyer, would endeavor to provide you with as much convenience as he can and should, rather than leaving most of the work for the client. Overall, it was a convenient experience, he was as clear as he could've been, everything went as smooth as they could have, Thanks to him.

Look No Further, This it the Firm you looking for on Immigration Law.
My removal proceeding and adjustment of status was handled by Law office of Jonathan H. Lamb. I had the pleasure of working with the Mrs. Angie and Mr. Lamb himself. Angie was very honest and professional. With this firm its not only about your money, its about productivity, quality, result and delivery!!!!!!!! . They will exceed your expectations!!!!!!! . There were no extra or hidden fees. Angie was always prompt in responding to questions I had while my case was pending. My Adjustment of status was granted in March 2017 in immigration court, with the grace of GOD and the help of the awesome team at Law office of Jonathan H. Lamb. I would encourage anyone/ everyone seeking immigration assistance, to look no further retain this firm. You wont be disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, Angie and Mr. Lamb.

Above all else experienced mattered in my situation
I read all the reviews but after actually talking to other clients and friends Mr. Lambs name kept coming up as the best and most experienced attorney for my situation. I had a honest and open consultation with him and hired him on the spot. Talk to other attorneys but hire this one. He's success record is amazing and he knows more about the law than probably many other attorneys in town. I hired him to do a job and he won! That's what really matters most.

Excellent Immigration Attorney In State of Texas
Its hard to find a attorney who really cares about his clients and have full command in his profession. I found myself very fortunate to have Jonathan Lamb as my immigration counsel who helped me get my legal status when others either declined to take my case or only interested in hefty fees.

Outstanding Attorney!
I have worked with many attorneys in the past in regards to immigrations issues, business litigations however the experience I had with Mr. Lamb was extraordinary. I think he is very articulate, competent and cares about his clients. He will go extra few miles to help his clients and he is very reasonable. I will recommend him over any big firm in Texas.

The best immigration attorney in Houston
He was excellent! Handled my immigration case honestly and professionally. I recommend him above all the other immigration attorneys I talked to. He has complete understanding of the laws and was exceptional on my asylum. My whole family used him to do all our cases. Talk to him before you hire anyone else!

Good Experience
My experience with him was very good. He handled my case very successfully at a time when I had whatsoever no knowledge of lawyers or anything relating to it. I completely trusted him and it paid off.
