Our History

Our founders, Raymundo Valdez and Carlos Monárrez, met back in 2005 while they were studying law in St. Thomas University in Florida. Both shared a special interest for representing clients struggling with immigration issues. Valdez went on to work in the area of immigration law and civil litigation, while Monárrez served as a public prosecutor in Brownsville, Texas. In 2009, they decided to join their unique career experience and reputation as immigration attorneys to establish Valdez and Monárrez Law Office.

Our Values

Commitment to our Clients
Individualized Attention


“I’ve always been interested in immigration law since I started law school. Being from the Valley and the son of parents that migrated to the United States, I like the opportunity to help the community and bring families together.”


“Working at the District Attorney’s Office made me realize that I wanted to focus my efforts on protecting people’s rights when they get in trouble and keeping in check everyone’s right to stay in this country in a matter that is reasonable”

Raymundo Valdez was born to Mexican national parents in Mcallen, Texas. He experienced immigration first-hand when his mother obtained her residency through amnesty and later became a United States citizen through naturalization. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio and from St. Thomas University School of Law. Valdez’ career experience working in prestigious law firms has gained him extensive knowledge in criminal law, immigration law, family law, personal injury and civil litigation cases.

Carlos Mónarrez was born and raised in Brownsville, Texas. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Biology and later attended St. Thomas University School of Law. Monárrez gained invaluable experience in criminal law during his work as public prosecutor at the District Attorney’s Office in Brownsville, Texas. His areas of expertise include DWI, drug possession, theft, assault, and homicide cases.
