Meet Our Team:
Composed of extensively trained and experienced attorneys,
Lin & Valdez groups up a combined fifty years of experience
in legal practice to serve clients worldwide. Headquartered
in the booming southwest area of Houston, Texas, we are
located in one of the most ethnically diversified cities
in the world. Our clientele covers people from the four-corners
of the world. People having lived in this country entrust
to us with their civil, family, bankruptcy, criminal, personal
injury, and estate planning matters. Clients from foreign
countries, or companies hiring people from foreign countries
rely on our immigration and international services to meet
their immigration, international trading, and investment
goals. With the diversified practice of law in different
areas, we provide a high quality legal service to meet the
needs of our clients, domestically and internationally.
On the immigration aspect of our practice, our attorneys have helped numberless
foreign friends obtain legal status, permanently or temporarily. Each of our
attorneys has extensive court experience and it is unique to an immigration
law firm. We believe that kind of experience is important even for representing
clients in applications filed to the INS because court experience trains an
attorney the ability to analyze complicate issues and present the most effective
arguments within a short time. That ability, even for applications filed in
writing, is crucial for our clients’ immigration applications.
On Civil practices, we have a remarkably strong and outstanding litigation
team. Mr. Alfred Valdez, with over three hundred mediations in his belt as a
mediator, is an experienced litigator. Mr. Barry Berger, formerly Ford Foundation
Fellow and Instructor at Georgetown University Law Center for litigation training,
and an Assistant and Associate Professor of Law of University of Baltimore School
of Law, has over thirty years in legal career. Both of them worked with Newton
Schwartz P.C., a famous plaintiff-firm of Houston, in litigation for many years.
Especially for our international clients coming to the U.S. for investment,
trading, and doing business, Lin & Valdez is well-tooled to help you in
resolving legal disputes.
In sum, we wish to help each of our clients achieve their goals, either its
immigration or other aspects of legal matters. Our attorneys and staff speak
English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean, and Romanian, and this
allows us to communicate with our clients well. We hope you will find what you
need here, and wish we will have the opportunity to serve you.
