When I started looking for an Immigration Lawyer, I got scared and exhausted because the status of my case was “removal proceeding.” I thought this meant that I will be deported and never have a chance to get back to the United States and stay with my lovely husband. I researched the law on this subject and realized that I can receive the best immigration help in TX from the Gabriel Jimenez Law Office. They told me that they only take cases in which they can help you. I contacted them, sent my documentation and had a conversation with Mr. Jimenez. He explained where I stand in my situation and said that he is taking my case. I felt at ease after Mr. Jimenez explained my rights and gave me the assurance of success.
During the case, I had professional support from the Office. I live in Atlanta GA, but my Master Hearings was in El Paso, TX. Everything I needed Mr. Jimenez and his staff did for me. I even did not
have to attend the Hearings. They are very professional and give 100% to what they do.
It was a hard time in my life. Sometimes you just can't help yourself due to the lack of knowledge in a situation to make the right choice. The Immigration Lawyer is like a doctor who can save you and you must pick a professional or you will lose everything. I made the right choice and now I am absolutely happy because Gabriel Jimenez Law Office won my case and my case is now closed. This means that I can stay in the USA with my family.
I wrote this review not only because I appreciate everything that Gabriel Jimenez Law Office has done for me, But also because I want to let everybody who needs the immigration help in TX know that the best professionals you can find, works for Gabriel Jimenez Law Office.

Mr. Jimenez is a really terrific lawyer. My husband and I went through a tortuous case from 2011-2013, and he was always there, answering the phone when we called, sending us information, submitting legal paperwork, and helping us stay calm and not panic despite a legal system that seemed designed to make us suffer. My husband (fiancé at the time) was a business owner in a bad neighborhood, and his residency permit had expired. He hadn't been in his home country in 20 years; he was trying to lay low and wait for his American-borne daughter to turn 21 in a year or two. One day he was parked in the driveway of an abandoned property when a group of homeless people came out and started threatening him. He panicked, and instead of backing up, he drove forward a foot or two, striking the building. He then threw it in reverse and drove away. Six months later he got a letter asking him to appear in court to answer to a charge of felony hit and run. The homeless people were claiming he rammed the building on purpose so as to damage their possessions, and then fled the scene – even though his store was across the street. We went to court, and the judge actually believed the accusers and put my beloved in the county jail for two weeks. We spent the whole time absolutely petrified that the case would be referred to ICE and he would be deported. That’s when I hired Mr. Jimenez. First, he looked up the charge in the immigration system’s law books, which are different from the regular kind, and found that, even though it was a felony, it was not a deportable offense because there was no element of “moral turpitude” to it. What a relief! He encouraged us to get married ASAP, and get the paperwork over to him so he could start the process of turning my beloved into a legal American resident. Mr. Jimenez came with us to that awful ICE interview where they tried to claim we were not a real couple, despite two years’ worth of photos together, including our wedding, vacations, day trips, family gatherings. They even sent me a letter saying I was going to have to prove that losing him would be an inordinate hardship to me. Once again, I panicked, called Mr. Jimenez, and he reassured me that everything was fine. In the end, he was 100% right. My husband is now a legal US resident. Thank God for Mr. Jimenez, is all I can say. He charged a reasonable, up-front fee, and he was there for us through the whole thing.

My family and I highly recommend Mr. Jimenez. I was facing deportation to Venezuela and was feeling helpless. I was faced with leaving my family in the U.S. and being sent to an unknown country that I had not been to since I was a young boy. Mr. Jimenez always remained positive and and hopeful until the very end. He was always there to answer any question I had. I m very proud that I am now a resident alien. I could not have done it without Mr. Jimenez. I will continue to refer him and will use him in the future for help with my U.S Citizenship.

I endorse this lawyer. Gabriel and I have worked together on cases where my clients had court hearings or CIS appearances in Texas. He is knowledgeable and always thoroughly prepared. I would not hesitate to affiliate with him again.

We had the opportunity to work with Gabriel on an immigration case in the El Paso Immigration Court where he represented one of my clients. His communication skills and professionalism were outstanding and we will gladly work with him again given the opportunity.
