Raul García was born and raised in the border community of McAllen, Texas, deep in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas.  The second of five children born to Mexican immigrant parents in one of our nation’s poorest regions, Raul understands firsthand the plight of immigrants and the importance of providing affordable legal representation to the traditionally underrepresented. Raul has represented thousands of non-citizens before the immigration court and USCIS.

Raul is particularly proud of being from the Rio Grande Valley.  There he learned that there are no shortcuts to success; it comes only through hard work and persistence.  It is with this in mind that Raul earned his J.D. degree from Seattle University School of Law and in 2001 began to practice immigration law as a non-profit attorney in Austin, Texas.  In 2005, with his late father doubling as his legal assistant, he opened up his own practice in Austin and McAllen.  In 2011, Raul and his brother Carlos formed García & García Attorneys at Law, P.L.L.C. Under Raul’s guidance, the offices continue to grow. In addition, Raul recently oversaw the expansion of a third office in San Antonio.

Raul primarily practices out of the Austin office but continues to oversee the management of the Austin, McAllen, and San Antonio offices.  When not practicing law or overseeing the business affairs of the law offices.

Raul enjoys spending time with his wife, Madge Vasquez.  He also hosts a one hour weekly radio show on KEILAH Radio, a Christian radio station in Austin, Texas where he shares information about rights and benefits available to immigrants in the community and where he gives callers an opportunity to voice their opinions and ask questions.

Attorney Martin Pina is a third-year attorney from the Rio Grande Valley. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from St. Mary’s University of San Antonio (’10) and a Juris Doctorate from Texas Tech University School of Law (’14) in Lubbock Texas. During his final year of studies, he participated in the Criminal Defense Clinic as a student attorney representing indigent defendants from Lubbock County.

After graduation, Martin began practicing family law and criminal defense in Hidalgo County with an office Edinburg, Texas in August of 2016. He continued his commitment to providing legal services to the indigent community by regularly accepting court appointments through the Hidalgo County Indigent Defense Program as part of his practice. Many of those court appointments involved representing members of Hidalgo County’s immigrant community.

In June of 2017, Martin joined the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office in Corpus Christi, Texas in an effort to hone his legal skills and become a more well-rounded attorney. He began his tenure there as a misdemeanor prosecutor for County Court at Law No. Four and saw himself quickly promoted to felony prosecutor for the 28th District Court in a little under a year’s time. As a prosecutor, he took numerous cases to trial for both felony and misdemeanor level offenses, which afforded him invaluable experience in the practice of criminal law.

After a little over a year with the Nueces County District Attorney’s Office, Martin decided to transition back into criminal defense, which has always been his first love. He is excited to begin this new chapter where he will apply the skills acquired over the past two years toward the service of Austin and its surrounding area’s immigrant community through effective and zealous legal representation in criminal matters.

On a personal note: As the son of immigrant parents from Valle Hermoso, Tamaulipas, Mexico, Martin very closely identifies with the immigrant community and is passionate about providing legal services for its members who may find themselves facing criminal charges. He looks forward to doing so as the newest member of Garcia & Garcia Attorneys at Law.
