Miriam Garza-Lee is a proud Texan and first generation Mexican-American, which exposed her to the strife immigrant families face. She speaks English and Spanish fluently. 

 Mrs. Garza-Lee received a Bachelor of Arts in History from The University of Texas at Arlington. She graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University School of Law. While in law school, she was involved with the Texas A&M Immigrant Rights Clinic and the Immigration Law Initiative. She also interned with Catholic Charities of Dallas. Her volunteer work and internship allowed her to develop an understanding of asylum, special immigrant juvenile status, DACA, and family petitions. During her second year of law school, she served as a research fellow for Professors Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic as part of the Texas A&M Institute for Advanced Study; the fellowship involved researching critical race theory, which explores the treatment of minorities throughout legal procedures.

Mrs. Garza-Lee lives in Duncanville with her husband and puppy. In her spare time, she enjoys diving into various arts and crafts projects, including painting and home décor.

“I am the General Counsel for a global internet security company. I have been working with Martin and his team for over three years on immigration matters including permanent residence, intracompany-transferee, investor’s, and H-1B matters. My experience has been outstanding. Martin or anyone in the firm always respond promptly and professionally. I usually work on very tight deadline and Martin and his team have always helped us achieve our goals. In my experience in comparison to working with other immigration lawyers, Chavez & Valko makes the complicated and burdensome process feel like a breeze. I would recommend Chavez & Valko to anyone who wants precision, promptness and professionalism.”

“My family and I would like to thank the attorneys from the immigration law firm of Chavez & Valko LLP for the great work fulfilled in my immigration case which had a happy ending. . . the immigration law argued that a criminal case like the one I had was eligible for deportation and my options were minimal. . . With their experience and great knowledge in immigration law, their perseverance and professionalism, they were able to win my case in my favor in Dallas immigration court (EOIR). I would like to give special thanks to the law firm of Chavez & Valko, who was with us at all times giving us support, security and great optimism.”
