Texas does offer certification in immigration law. Contact sate bar association for a list of certified attorneys. However, you do not need a Texas certified attorney to do the work. In fact, you do not even need a necessarily Texas-based attorney. Immigration is a form of Federal law and can be practiced by any attorney licensed in any of the 50 states or the DC, or US territory. You can contact www.ailalawyer.org (American Immigration Lawyer's Association referral website) to find yourself a knowledgeable and well-respected immigration attorney. Certified attorney will be much more expensive in terms of the fees they charge, and rightly so, since the amount of work they had put to secure such certification was labor intense and time consuming.
Since I am not certified in Texas, and you are only seeking a certified Texas immigration attorney's advice, I cannot offer you a substantive answer to your quesiton. Best of luck.

Sorry you have had problems getting useful information and assistance. Since immigration law is federal, your lawyer does not have to be licensed in Texas. S/he can be licensed (and certified) in any State.
