Practice area

Abraham J. Galaviz is the son of a tailor and a seamstress. He was born and raised in Mission, Texas, located in the Rio Grande Valley. His parents were Mexican Immigrants who benefited from the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (1980’s Amnesty). From a young age, Abraham was taught the importance of an education and hard work.

After graduating high school, Abraham attended the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). While there, Abraham earned his place on the Dean’s List for achieving scholastic distinction. He also interned at the United States District Court for the Western District as a clerk for Judge William Royal Furgeson, Jr.

After graduating from UTSA, Abraham entered law school at Thurgood Marshall School of Law in Houston, Texas. While there, he began working as a Law Clerk for a boutique firm that specializes in immigration law. As a Law Clerk, Abraham learned about the complexities and difficulties of immigration law. He worked closely with attorneys on very complex matters involving clients who were facing deportation and separation from their families.

After graduating law school, Abraham continued to work for the same firm and began representing clients in immigration court where he gained practical and immigration court trial experience. In 2013, Abraham founded his own firm. He also actively volunteers his time on the weekends to provide free legal advice at different workshops throughout the city of Houston.

Abraham is very passionate about his work. He empathizes with Clients because he knows that his parents once traveled the same road his clients are now traveling. The people he helps all have a story behind them. He knows that his clients want the opportunity to work and have a better future. He knows that most of his clients have sacrificed a great deal to come to this country, including risking their lives in crossing the Rio Grande River or the Sonoran Desert. Abraham treats his clients with respect, dignity and honesty. He helps families stay together, as well as, legally reunite families after being apart for many years. Most importantly, Abraham helps his clients achieve the American Dream!.

3 Felony charges dismissed!
My brother was charged with 2 aggravated assaults with a deadly weapon and a gun charge. My brother was innocent, however because of his past criminal record it was easy for the DA to charge him. It takes a very aggressive and knowledgeable defense attorney to fight for your loved ones innocence. Attorney Galaviz fought so hard for his innocence and even though the grand jury indicted my brother, the attorney after 4 months got all his charges dismissed! In the past even though my brother was innocent on most of the accusations, at the advice of the lazy and non caring attorneys, my brother would just sign and not realizing that he never had to, but instead fight with the right representation! Attorney Galaviz, from me and my family, "Thank you for all your help and support in proving our brother's innocence".

Excellent service, went above and beyond!
Mr. Galaviz is someone you can go to with confidence. Before coming to his law firm I had a terrible experience with a different firm and was feeling horrible with how they treated my case. However, Mr. Galaviz took my case and flipped it to my favor even though I was told by the previous firm that they had done "everything" they could. I am so grateful to have had hired someone who cared about my case as much as I did.

Houston’s BEST
Immigration proceedings are never something that anyone wants to think about, but when there is a need, Mr. Galaviz and his team are the people to hire! From the initial online contact, Mr. Galaviz personally reached out to me and guided me through the possible outcomes. He gave me real expectations, and not once made me feel uneasy or discouraged. He was in constant communication with my family and me throughout the entire process, which shows his level of care and love and passion for what he does. His level of knowledge is admirable and 100% recommended. He was able to beat a case that many said was impossible. I will be forever thankful for all his hard work and dedication to keep my family together in a country that is home to us all.

Mr. Galaviz is an amazing experienced lawyer that does not let you lose hope.
Mr. Galaviz is a bilingual lawyer that made sure everything was taken care of for me. He made sure that I had nothing to worry about, and never lost hope. My mother does not speak English or is a us citizen, so the fact that he made her feel welcomed and hopeful meant the world to me. He is a family man so he always goes above and beyond for his clients. He brought my family together again and it means more to me than anything. I recommend this lawyer for anybody who is in need of a responsible, experienced, diligent lawyer that will never let you lose hope. He made sure everything was okay with our case and never let anybody feel like we had no option or no way out. Mr. Galaviz is an amazing lawyer that is fluent in spanish.

One of the best if not the best
Very professional, great customer service, my phone and my concerns were answered at the spot. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Honestly and truly I feel I’m lucky that I found him because many other lawyers said to me we can not handle your case because it is complicated. Mr. Abraham said easy and got me my citizenship in less then 6 months from start to finish. He and his team helped filling up my N400 and he reviewed it with me before the interview and he came in to the interview with me. Truly life saving services. Definitely recommend him for any immigration services.

Abraham Galaviz & Shelby Galaviz helped us with the process we needed to get my son's certificate citizenship paperwork legalized after an adoption when my husband adopted him in 1989 in Berlin,Germany so we thought he was automatically a American citizen but this was not the case so the Galaviz Lawfirm helped us & guided us in the right direction to get this done. Everytime I called had a question Shelby always called back & answer my question .We cannot thank Abraham Galaviz and Shelby Galaviz enough for their help. We forever be grateful to them for their help. The GALAVIZ LAWFIRM is the one to hire with all your immigration problems in the Houston & surrounding areas!!!!

Amazing Lawyer and Team Rewards Wonderful Results!!!
I found out about Mr. Abraham Galaviz from the yellow pages when searching for a legal immigration attorney for my wife. After meeting with and being consulted by Mr. Galaviz I decided to retain his services/hire him, because I got a genuine sense of caring from him. Over the course of time it has taken to WIN my wife’s case and help her obtain her Green Card, I have come to know him not only as one of the best lawyers you could ask for, but as a true friend. He is; without a doubt, of the utmost caliber of professionalism, knowledge on the issues and one of the most empathetic persons I have ever met. Would I recommend this amazing lawyer and team, absolutely yes. If you are concerned about anything regarding your legal status and wanting a pathway to fix it, I implore you to seek out this lawyer and allow him to do for you what he did for us. Hiring this man along with his wonderful team was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!!!
