    I represent individuals, families and businesses in immigration matters of all kinds. I am fluent in Spanish.

  2. Asylum
    10%
    I represent individuals seeking either affirmative or defensive asylum.

    8 years, 15 cases

I enjoy working with individuals, families and business on all matters pertaining to immigration. I use my knowledge of economics, law, history and psychology to understand the legal, human and political contexts of each client’s legal problems.  

 

I bring skill, energy, and passion to find solutions for people from different countries and cultural backgrounds to obtain legal status in the United States.

 

I work with clients on a variety of matters, including work, business and family visas; family petitions; adjustment of status; removal of conditions; naturalization; U visas; work permits; deferred action (DACA); R-1 religious worker visas; asylum petitions; and waivers.

 

My most common cases include obtaining legal residency “green cards” for family members, securing waivers for illegal presence, removal of spousal visa conditions after divorce, and deferred actions and temporary status based on humanitarian relief, among others.

 

I studied law and started my practice in Colombia, where I worked for seven years. I also earned a Masters in Business Administration to better assist companies of all sizes in their growth plans, which often include immigration issues.

 

I volunteer for the CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Program and am a member of the National Women MBAs and the Latina Bar Association.

 

I am fluent in Spanish and English.

We would like to thank Luz Metz and her entire team Laura Solis and Yadira Morales for helping us. They told us what to do and were with us every step of the way. We were nervous to move on but they made us feel comfortable and were very understanding and thanks to their professionalism, their honesty and their willingness to serve and help we obtained our green card. We recommend clients to use their services. We are looking forward to a more beautiful glitter thanks to your help. Thank you METZ LAW GROUP

Friendly, Supportive and Knowledgeable!
My wife and i, were recommended to Metz Law from my cousin. They are the first Immigration law firm we have worked with. Not only did they go above and beyond for us.! They made themselves available and accessible to all of our needs and questions. We would recommend Luz and Yadira in a heart beat! They know what they are doing! Immigration Law is frustrating and scary, but with these ladies by your side you have nothing to worry about.

5 STAR SUPPORT
Luz and her assistant Yadira are so amazing! From the start they have been straight forward and very honest. They make my husband and myself feel reassured and answer any questions we have. I'm so grateful I found such an amazing attorney! We live in portland and they are in Seattle and we do everything by phone and email which works perfect for our busy life. I can not thank these ladies enough for all that they continue to do for my family! I will continue to refer anyone I know that needs help to Metz Law.

Professional, Honest, Caring, and Effective (Profesional, honesta, y efectiva)
Luz helped my wife through her immigration quest to becoming a resident. She didn't have a whole lot of options but Luz guided her through the pros and cons of all situations and found an honest and great option for me to petition for my wife. We are so blessed. She always answers calls which is very important. Luz le ayudo a mi esposa en su camino a la residencia. No tenia muchas opciones pero encontro lo bueno y malo de todas situaciones y encontro una manera honesta de lograr que puediera pedir a mi esposa. Estamos muy bendecidos. Recomiendo a la abogada mucho! Siempre contesta las llamadas que fue muy importante!

Review for Luz metz
I would absolutely recommend Luz Metz for your immigration attorney. She was amazing!!! She helped me and my husband with every step of the way. She stayed in contact often and was always updating us on the process. She made us feel important and she was very knowledgeable about the whole process and very upfront about what we needed to do and how the process would work. I have already recommended many friends and family to her and they have all had great things to say about working with Luz.
