At the Texas-based immigration law firm, with offices in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the legal professionals at Chavez & Valko, LLP provide effective immigration legal services for our clients. Our immigration attorneys have an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of immigration law, and are attentive to our clients' needs throughout the entire process.

Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Immigration and Nationality Law, attorney Nicolas Chavez is an expert in immigration law.

In addition to a company with over $8 billion in annual sales, we have been representing and provided immigration counsel to Fortune 500 and other multi-national companies, performers musicians (including a Grammy-nominated pianist) , a MLB and NFL trading card manufacturer, hospitals, medical doctors, nurses, clergy, ministerial staff, and school districts. Our clients also include World Champion Track & Field athletes, swimmers, Olympians, a professional race car team and driver, NHL and NFL players and a NFL cheerleader.

We often speak with prospective clients who are frustrated with the immigration process because either their case proceeded too slowly, they were unable to reach their immigration attorney, or the legal process was "invisible" to them. Our passion is to help individuals and companies fully resolve their immigration law challenges quickly and completely, by:

  • Efficiently processing each petition;
  • Keeping our clients informed about the process step by step; and
  • Remaining easily accessible to clients. For convenience, we are open on Saturdays to further help clients reach us to discuss their legal matters.

Our immigration lawyers and staff in our offices in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, strive to provide the best possible legal services to our clients with relentless pursuit of their immigration solutions allowable by the law.

Immigration laws and regulations are dynamic in nature and change constantly, so our lawyers stay on top of latest developments and attend continuing legal education classes. Best of all, each attorney at Chavez & Valko has taught other immigration lawyers and presented at CLEs, seminars, and events for community-based organizations.
