Practice areas

Born in El Paso, Texas, Pamela G. Munoz has been working in the field of immigration law since 2004. Her advocacy work began at Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, where she represented refugees and unaccompanied children from 2004-2006 before leaving to attend UNM School of Law in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After law school Pamela returned to El Paso, Texas and resumed representing individuals in immigration law matters before the Immigration Court, the Board of Immigration Appeals, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service. Pamela was a partner in a law firm for nearly a decade, and in 2022 left in order to open and run a solo practice. She served as President of the Board of Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center from 2014-2016, and as Chair of the New Mexico State Bar Immigration Law Section for 2014. In 2013, Pamela was consulted by the office of former U.S. Congressman Beto O’Rourke during his time as the U.S. Representative for the 16th Congressional district of Texas. She would go on to collaborate with his office on several immigration advocacy measures. Since 2021 she has been the President of the El Paso Immigration Defense Bar. Her current practice focuses on the many facets of U.S. immigration law, with a particular interest in removal defense, family-based immigration, and the complexities of asylum and refugee law. In October 2022, Pamela was admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.

3 words: Professional, Humble,& Excellent
My mother overstayed with her visa years ago and my family and I finally gathered the money to file for her residence. Needless to say, the process went fast and smooth thanks to Pamela and my mother had her green card in about 3 months from filing. I am beyond thankful for the attentive service Pamela offered to my mother. She is very responsive on her emails and phone calls and even if she missed some she will get back to you soon. If you do hire her, be prepared to be patient because she is highly requested to represent other people as well as yourself. However, don't let that scare you! Even though she is extremely busy she works around your schedule to meet up with you and have all the paperwork ready to go for the legal case. Pamela, thank you very much for all the hard work you do!

Look no further! She will help you! I recently finish my immigration case and everything went incredible. I can’t stress out how knowledgeable she is. I have a felony (and I’m not saying that she can help everyone with the same problems that I had) but I’m a permanent resident and my father is nationalize citizen and when I told her my situation, immediately she told me that I might be legible for citizenship… to be honest, I was shopping around, but, off all 5 attorneys that I went, she was the only one that immediately knew my options compare to the other ones. It came to a point that I told them what Mrs. Munoz told me and then that’s when they told me that she was right and the completely forgot about that law! She never made me feel like I was just another case (money). She cares, gave me advice, and truly help me with this stress full situation. Hands down, she is the best not just like an attorney, but as a person. I’m so thank-full that God put her in my path. So if you are reading this Mrs. Munoz, thank you and God bless!

Thank you Pamela!
I was not aware of the existence of the U Visa until Pamela introduced me to it. She guided me towards the steps to apply for it, and we finished the process successfully. She was always accessible and ready to inform me about the status of the application. Thank you.

We started an adjustment of status last year with another attorney and we had problems from the beginning. My case was not handled as it should have been, some of my documents were lost and I was told by this other attorney that since we filed the applications (one month before) the laws had changed, which of course was not true, and that my husband and I could not do anything for my son. That attorney said that he had to cancel my son’s application because if we did not do that, his petition would be denied and he would be deported. My husband and I just were not willing to give up, and after what happened with my documents, we didn’t believe him 100%. So we looked for another attorney on line and found Pamela Genghini Munoz, who had one of the highest ratings in AVVO. Pamela was at all times honest and professional. She was able to get my son’s case re-opened and she knew exactly what should be done in order to get our adjustment of status. She demonstrated high knowledge during the entire process, and proved that she is a highly skilled immigration attorney. A few months later, we obtained our Resident Cards with no other problem whatsoever. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking an immigration lawyer who really cares about her clients and their families, who is absolutely honest, professional, and skillful. Thank you Pamela for helping us make one of our dreams come true!

It is Hard to Find a Good Lawyer Like Her
If you need an immigration lawyer in El Paso, TX, please look no more. She knows her job and the immigration laws very well. She is professional, dedicated and honest. If the job can be done, it will be done. I was basically hopeless until she told me that my case could be done. And so it was successfully done. I cannot be happier with the results. THANK YOU PAMELA! Do I recommend this Law firm?... Absolutely! L.C.

No cumplió profesionalmente
Contraté a la Abogada Pamela G. Munoz para procesar el Parole para mi hermana, me cobró por la consulta y le pagué, en Abril 2024, y en la consulta exigió el pago completo de honorarios para iniciar el proceso y se los pague el 29/4/2024 y los recibió y quedó en iniciar el proceso en primera semana de mayo. Después de esta comunicación no contestó más mis llamadas , mensajes, correos ni tampoco mensajes por redes sociales. Hasta la fecha ha sido imposible localizarla para que me devuelva los honorarios que le pague y que reuní con mucho sacrificio, ya que no cumplió con su compromiso profesional.
