Attorney Carrie Nguyen
Carrie Nguyen founded the law office with the mission of helping families stay together. As an immigrant herself, Carrie understands how important your immigration issue is to you and your family. Her passion is protecting immigrants from deportation and ultimately to obtain legal status and citizenship.
She has been recognized as a Rising Star in Immigration Law by Super Lawyers Magazine. Carrie has successfully represented clients before the USCIS and immigration courts across the country on matters such as bond hearings, deportation defense, waivers, and complex green card and citizenship cases. She has been guest speaker at various conferences and presentations hosted by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)'s national and TX chapter and the Dallas Bar Association.
Carrie connects with her clients through personal experience of being an immigrant from Vietnam who moved to Dallas in the early 1990s. Since then, Carrie has enjoyed immersing herself in different cultures and learning new languages. She studied and worked abroad in England and Japan, and treasured her experiences living with local families in Guatemala and Mexico. After law school she worked for the Department of Justice in Washington D.C. before coming back to her hometown in Arlington, TX.
Carrie loves to support and give back to her DFW community. She volunteers pro-bono services to nonprofit organizations including Catholic Charities, Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON), and the North Texas Dream Team. She also teaches ESL and citizenship class at her church in Fort Worth. Her other interests include traveling, speaking Spanish, and spending time with family, friends, and her dog Willie.
