Esquivel, Paul A. - The Law Offices of Paul A. Esquivel
How interesting that the first two positive reviews for this scumbag came on the same day almost 9 years ago. Pure coincidence, I'm sure. At least Paul figured out that if you're going to have family, friends, or office staff write fake positive reviews for you, you should at least be less obvious about it. Nonetheless, every positive review here reads from the same fake-sounding script, with most sounding as though they were written by the same person. Once a fraud, always a fraud. Mr. Esquivel should have been permanently disbarred years ago. He has now TWICE been issued multi-year suspensions by the Texas bar. His latest misconduct: "The District 10 Grievance Committee found that Esquivel neglected a client matter, failed to communicate with clients, failed to obtain prior consent from a client before entering into a fee arrangement for outside counsel to handle the representation, failed to refund unearned fees, failed to return a client file, and failed to supervise non-lawyer staff on immigration matters." He is a con man, plain and simple. He pretends to practice immigration law because it's easy to take $1,500 from someone in total desperation, do virtually nothing for the client, lose the case, but then face no consequences since the client is ultimately deported (and doesn't know how to file and pursue a grievance anyway). You have to be epically horrible to be disciplined even once in immigration law. Screw enough people over a long enough time, though, and it catches up to you even in this area of the law, where lawyers defraud their clients with impunity. STAY AWAY.
The help me and my husband finally get someone who could truly help us with our three children. We read english and tried to fill out forms for them, but it was complicated more then we hoped. they gave us a payment plan and had my son and daughters application in to immigration in a litle less then a week. They are busy, but the wait was well worth it. I also have them trying to help me get my husband's mama from Mexico. Thanks to them and to Joe who helped me .
I do not recommend Paul Esquivel. I thought maybe he could help my loved one because of his popularity. You see him on billboards everywhere and on TV. He charged us $1200 to do NOTHING! He is just money hungry. The law office lied to us several times they said they were going to the immigration jail to talk to my loved one and each day was another excuse on why they didn't show up. They even said they talked to him and said "Oh yes he speaks very good English" Yet when I asked my loved one he said no one spoke to him. He didn't even show up to the court hearing. We made an appointment to ask him why he didn't show up and on the day of the appointment he wasn't there. He is just charging all his clients $1000 and he only puts more effort on the easy cases. Worst attorney ever! Be careful with him.
This is my opinion and I hope it helps. Stay away from this law firm. The staff for Paul Esquivel is no good. Jose is the rudest person I have ever dealt with. He belittles the customers and I am not sure if Mr. Esquivel is aware of the way he is, his supervisor Manuel is his uncle so he is bias of repremanding him. No one ever calls you back, I had to call almost every day to get a simple answer. My husband has no criminal record and I was told he would bond out. $3000 later he is back in his country and Paul Esquivel did nothing. I have spoken with other law offices that stated that my husbands situation should have NEVER been a NO BOND situation but a higher one at that. Please go with another attorney. My husband may be illegal but that does not hide the fact that his human rights were violated. I will go to the legal board and to the better business bureau because I do not wish this type of service on anyone
The offices have began an exciting new program that helps families from mexico and central america that had no way of obtaining work permit or a drivers licence before. You have to call, especially if you have a United States citizen family member and have been in US for some time. They can get you a work permit, protection for deportation, a drivers licence and social security card and more. Call them, they have worked with much of my family and as of such I have been pleased to work with and for then in getting there message out. It is a great new program, dont miss ouot
Mr. Esquivel's San Antonio office intruduced our family to a new program that helped my husband get a work permit and protection from deportation when all other attorney's had not be able to help us. The office spent a great deal of time and consern in our case and found a program that heped us. I was refered by other clients here in San Antonio and I have found Mr. Esquivel;'s srtong reputation in the San antonio area to be well deserved. I am a citizen and ws so upset that the US government did not want to help my husband and my famiy. mr. esquivel showed me the US is not so bad, just have to know your rights. Thanks!!!
Paul Esquivel did not do much to help my husband. His assistant order my husband his work permit and never received it. The day of court he was supposed to file an extension. The week before his departure his assistant was rushing to the immigation office to file and still till this day we have not hear anything. My husband went in to the office to find ot what was going on and he was told there was nothing else they could do for him. After Paul told him not to worry. I went in to the office and left a message to return my call to pick up the paper work to find another attorney its been over a month and still have not heard from anyone. They do not return your calls at all. Do your homework before you hire an attorney. This is your for your own peace and happiness.
This is a completely in accurate portrayal. This client was not completely forthcoming with our office and was responsible for his own situation. We have helped thousands of immigrant familes throughout the country and simply calling our offices you can see this was a bitter client that could not accept they had broken to many laws to obtain help. Some people do not want to face their case situation. We are always honest and when this client was told there was nothing further he could do, he did not want to accept his fate. This is a sad situation, but more times then not we can help in your immigration case. We figure our clients want to know the truth. We have many very happy clients and will be happy to provide references.
