About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

1
Practice area

Hablo español con fluidez y tengo una larga experiencia en casos de inmigración. Además, estoy certificado en Ley de inmigración por el Consejo de Especialización Legal del Estado de Texas (Texas Board of Legal Specialization, TBLS). 

Considere que sólo un porcentaje muy reducido de abogados (el diez por ciento), cuenta con esta certificación. La razón es que todo abogado certificado por el TBLS tuvo que:

-Haber contado con licencia para ejercer la profesión legal por un tiempo no menor a cinco años;

-Haber dedicado un porcentaje de tiempo a la práctica específica del Derecho de Inmigración por un periodo de al menos tres años;

-Haber llevado casos de inmigración de diversa índole para comprobar que se tiene experiencia en el campo

-Haber tomado cursos de Ley de Inmigración en seminarios de desarrollo profesional

-Haber sido evaluado por jueces y por otros abogados

-Aprobar un examen escrito de extensa duración (un día completo).

Por ello, antes de poner sus asuntos legales en manos de un abogado, pregunte si éste está certificado en Ley de Inmigración por el TBLS.

Recomendación de Abogado y Asistente Legal
Estoy muy satisfecha con el trabajo del abogado Brian Plotts y su asistente Amy Martinez. Ellos me representaron en los trámites para mi residencia y me sentí muy segura dejando que el abogado Brian y Amy llevaran mi caso. Ellos siempre contestaron todas mis peguntas. Cuando ellos recibían una carta de la oficina de USCIS en referencia a mi caso, Amy siempre me llamaba por teléfono para avisarme y explicarme detalladamente. Ellos siempre hicieron todo a tiempo y me prepararon muy bien para mi entrevista. El día de mi entrevista en la oficina de USCIS el abogado Brian me acompañó y estuvo a mi lado y mi residencia fue aprobada inmediatamente y mi pasaporte fue sellado cómo residente. Ahora ya viendo los resultados y el profesionalismo, yo como un cliente satisfecho puedo decir qué yo recomiendo a el abogado Brian Plotts y a su asistente Amy Martinez.

Great Lawyer!
Excellent attorney and I highly recommend him, he was very helpful and explained every step in the process perfectly. He is very well informed with the immigration process and takes time to point out where that information came from in the immigration law. He also took the time to meet with me to prep before the immigration hearing. During the hearing the officer requested more evidence and Brian sent a well written document in a timely manner covering all concerns that the officer had. We won the case and the citizenship was a approved a week after. Thanks Brian your confidence put me at ease during the whole process. Two thumbs up!!!

Great experience
Mr. Plotts was a great attorney for my dad. Every part of the process was well explained, and he and Amy were very diligent with the case. He also helped us by contacting a lawyer in Europe for a document my father needed. Overall it was a great experience and we are very satisfied with his service. Thank you Mr. Plotts and staff.

I recommend Brian Plotts
Brian Plotts is an excellent attorney especially for people coming from the Cameroons Africa. He won an asylum case for my nephew after reversing a credible fear interview in our favor. I hired Brian Plotts to represent my nephew. Brian was always available and returned calls promptly.. He spent alot of time with my nephew getting him ready for trial. When the trial came Brian was prepared and there were no surprises. The region of Southern Cameroon that declared independence 1st October 2017 called (Ambazonia) where there is an on going targeted killings on English speaking youths prompting a mass exodus of people fleeing the conflict regions to other parts of the world. I will recommend Brian Plotts law firm because of his mastery of the conflict in the Cameroons. His expertise and experience will guide you through complex immigration processes with great success. Eric .

The best immigration attorney
My dad was at risk of deportation. He was taken away to a detention facility. During this time me and my family felt robbed and vulnerable. We hired Brian Plotts and my dad was released in 2 weeks! Right after that Brian started working on my dads case quickly. Before trial he explained everything to us in Spanish so we knew exactly what will happen. My parents primary language is Spanish so he made my parents feel confident. He is knowledgeable and had a lot of experience. During trial he had everything ready. He even had extra copies. And when we had to present our case to our judge he was prepared for anything that would be thrown at him. He had an answer for every question. The government was not prepared. We won our case and my dad was granted forgiveness to stay in the United States and it was all thanks to his hard work.
