The Mendoza Law Firm is a national law firm with offices in El Paso, Texas, and Washington D.C., representing individuals, businesses, and other entities in a broad spectrum of immigration matters and other complex civil litigation and other business matters.  Internationally, and in El Paso, Texas, we assist individuals and business clients with a wide range of immigration matters, ranging from assisting companies assist key employee transfer to a U.S. affiliate to helping families reunite and gain U.S. citizenship through a family based immigration process.  In the District of Columbia and Maryland, we practice appellate advocacy, education law, and housing and development law.

Our clients come to us because they need their current situation to change – the sooner the better.  We emphasize not only creativity and thoroughness, but also speed and efficiency.  Unlike many lawyers at large firms, we regularly go to trial.  We don’t try every case because many disputes do not belong in the courtroom.  We devote our energies to taking exhaustive measures to prevent disputes from arising in the first place and negotiating reasonable and imaginative settlements that keep disputes out of the court when litigation arises. 

When advising our clients through the immigration process, fighting for them in court, or negotiating on their behalf at the bargaining table, we take a smart, aggressive approach that considers’ our clients’ financial and business needs, the practicalities of their legal problems, and the possibility that decisions made today will affect what happens at the conclusion of their case.
