About Our Firm
Our Austin immigration law firm specializes on representing U.S. citizens seeking permanent resident status for their spouses, parents, and children and on seeking U.S. citizenship (naturalization) for people who already hold green cards. We often handle cases to remove two year “conditional” limits from green cards obtained through marriage. We frequently represent applicants who need to renew or replace expiring, lost, or stolen green cards. Other family sponsored matters we handle include adjustment of status, consular processing for relatives needing green card interviews at U.S. consulates abroad, K-1 fiancée visas, and reentry permits for green card holders needing to temporarily reside/work overseas. We obtain temporary work permits (“EADs”) and travel permits (“advance paroles”) for our adjustment of status clients. We also represent many DACA recipients to seek renewals. For our corporate clients, our firm handles on behalf of their foreign national employees immigration cases requiring an employer sponsorship such as H-1B visas, PERM labor certifications with the U.S. Department of Labor, and their adjustment of status cases to seek permanent residency (green card) status.
At this time our firm is not handling visitor or student visa matters, E-1 or E-2 treaty investor/trader visas, EB-5 immigrant investor cases, O-1 nonimmigrant visas, asylum, or removal (deportation) defense.
Pardon our dust! As of October 2019 there is a large construction project underway close to our office. Please plan extra time in your travel arrangements as parking will be scarce. In the event you cannot find parking on Rio Grande or the nearby streets, please contact our front desk at 512-477-7887 and we might be able to direct you to a good parking space.

Clearly our immigration laws are overly restrictive and need comprehensive reform to unify families and to help employers with critical labor needs. http://bit.ly/parsons_2018-06
We recommend Paul Parsons’s Office / Why going for a Law Firm? There are many reasons to choose to work with a law firm when starting an immigration process to the USA, and since I believe everybody has a personal reason, I can only speak of my own experience and am writing this because it might be useful for someone else as well. Any immigration process is a highly bureaucratic process, and we decided to work with a law firm since it would help us organize the massive number of documents (many that are not clearly explained in the USCIS website) and because we have a handful of friends who all said that you really should have a lawyer for USA immigration. Why Paul Parsons Office? We read dozens of reviews (Google and Yelp) for an Austin, Texas based immigration lawyer and all the roads pointed to Paul Parsons’s Office. The reviews were great and we went for it. (more…)

Mr. Paul Parsons is the most knowledgable, professional and efficient attorney in Austin. He worked on my H1B work visas for years and when I got married he and his staff managed my case. When my husband and I went to San Antonio for our interview to get my Green Card, the officer there simply said that he would have to deny it due to us leaving the country while the change of status was in process. So, we called Mr. Parsons who, Thank God, was more knowledgable of the law than the officer himself, asked the officer to check with his supervisors before denying the residency card. Mr. Parsons even told the officer the name of his supervisors and within minutes, the officer that once had been so eager to deny my Green card, came back saying that my attorney Mr. Parsons seemed to be right, and he proceeded to approve the Residency Visa immediately. Needless to say, it was so stressful for us and had it not been for Mr. Parsons the outcome would have been a sad one rather than the happy one we had. I fervently recommend him to inform you and manage your immigration case with the upmost care and efficacy. I know he saved ours.

Paul Parson & his staff are the most professional immigration attorneys here in Austin. I was so worried that my husband would be deported in the process of waiting for his petition to be approved. Once we met with Mr. Parson it was an immediate relief & peace of mind to know he was willing to help us & most importantly guide us through this tough situation. I never felt so safe while in Juarez due to Paul’s Paralegals that work with him. We are so happy that the recommendations and guidelines they gave us helped the process run so smoothly. Once we submitted all they asked from us it was up to Mr. Parson to lead the way. I absolutely was intrigued by their honesty, fast responses.

Reliable and Trust Worthy Attorney
I highly recommend Mr. Parsons and his team to handle your immigration case. Unlike an attorney that I had before (who I could never find when I needed), Mr. Parson or his team always communicated with me. They always answered my emails within 24 hours or less, or called me back when I had questions. Also, the fact that his office has not changed locations, that they called me if there were changes or contacted me to give me updates save me a lot of time and lower my stress. I had to hunt down my previous attorney from office to office every time I needed to renew my work permit. In the past, I was nervous and panicking wondering if I would be able to find that other attorney before the due date for my application. Luckily as I searched for a new attorney I found Mr. Parson. He is someone who I could entrust with my immigration paper work and that has reasonable fees. (more…)

I recommend using Paul Parson as your Immigration Attorney! I hired Paul and his staff when I was ready to apply for my husband’s permanent resident alien card. I knew that I was going to use Paul because he had already helped numerous of my family members acquire permanent residence and citizenship in the United States. I am very pleased on how they always kept me up to date on what was happening in our case. It was always very easy to get in contact with Paul & Susan whether it was by phone or email I never got the run around actually our case took several years just because we decided to wait for the immigration laws to change so that we could apply for a waiver from with in the United States.

My employer and I have worked with Mr. Parsons on immigration processing thrice during the past six years. He and his paralegal Mr. Robert Eagle were instrumental in successful accomplishments of different stages of the process. Although the process itself was demanding and complex, Mr. Parsons and his team made it easy for us to prepare our case. They were very dedicated, pleasant, trustworthy, goal-oriented, and efficient in managing the time duration of the process. It was very easy to communicate with the team through conference calls and emails, despite being located at different cities

Paul has been helping me with immigration issues for over 10 years at two different companies. He has helped us with numerous candidates over the years, and the process has always gone very smoothly. He has a set process for how he addresses the issues based on his vast experience, and he makes things happen on a timely basis. There have been zero surprises in our cases and always a positive outcome.
Thanks to Paul Parsons and his staff, my wife and I no longer have to worry about the problems which one is faced with living in an illegal status. As a soldier in the U.S. Army, I was determined to get my wife squared away before deployment. I searched and prayed and was recommended to Paul Parsons and his staff. My wife and I will never forget Paul and Susan. We put our situation in his hands and went to the USCIS center in Mexico and we were literally there no longer than 5 days. To us this was miraculous. Sometimes this process takes people seeking permanent residency months or even years to get. God Bless this man and his staff.

My wife and I had just married and we wanted to apply for my wife to be a permanent resident. As a senior Army officer, I was looking for the best representation in regards to immigration to ensure that we did not have any problems. I contacted a Texas bar association asking for a recommendation for the best lawyer with regards to immigration matters and the gentleman I spoke to gave Paul Parsons’ name as the best. I personally found that to be true.
