About Brian

Learn Brian’s areas of practice.

Brian grew up in Nogales, Arizona, a city that lies along the border of the United States and Mexico. Growing up in Nogales gave Brian a unique perspective on some of the major issues our country is currently facing; including but not limited to immigration and drug trafficking. Brian’s is the son of a refugee. His mother was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba. Although she naturalized many years before her birth, Brian witnessed firsthand the traumatic effects that immigrating to a foreign country at a young age can cause. In 1961, at the age of seven, his mother immigrated to the United States without her parents during Operation Pedro Pan. Brian’s passion for helping immigrants with their immigration process comes not only from being the son of an immigrant, but also from having lived in a bordertown. Brian recognizes that even good people can succumb to the pressures and temptations of life. He truly believes that every person accused of a crime deserves the best representation and the opportunity to demonstrate that their charges do not define them as a person.

When faced with a criminal or immigration court case, let Brian defend you or your loved one!

Excellent lawyer
Brian was great! Respond quickly to all the questions that I had regarding my case. He was very patient with me, understood what I was going through and calmed me down. He took the time to sit down with me and explain my case many times. He was honestly since day one, very knowledgeable. I have no doubt that he was my best choice.

Reliable Service
Choosing legal representation can be nerveracking to say the least. Very fortunate to had hired Brian.. Puts the effort in & gets results. He is great at formulating a plan of negotiation, it is extremely important to minimize unwanted penalties. We normally don't get what we deserve, but what we negotiate for. Thank you Brian.

Helpful and informative
I had a question on criminal laws for my state to help a family member. Brian was quick to call back, and while there is no current open case, was willing to explain some of the laws in depth offering clarity. He was kind and did not rush the conversation. If ever needed to retain him, I would not hesitate.

Fue un gran placer visitar con su esposo en la carcel del condado “4th Ave”, para preparar lo por lo que le esperaba cuando saliera y le tocaba la entrevista de ICE. Me dio tanto gusto saber que tal vez mis consejos le ayudo salir de ICE sin fianza. Ahora seguiremos trabajando duro para luchar el caso del 42B cancelación de deportación.

Best man to fight for you
I had charges brought up against me for a small amount of marijuana that was not even mine but since I was in the same vehicle I was being charged. I hired Mr. Soto and he was able to get my case dismissed in no time without any stress on my end. The entire Maria Jones staff is incredible and would recommend going with them.
Response from Brian Soto November 24, 2019
Thank you for having the confidence in me to defend you. I’m happy we were able to get the charges dismissed.
