It makes a difference when lawyers take the time to get to know their clients. Salmon & Haas is a full-service general practice law firm that represents clients in a variety of matters, from family disputes to immigration cases, consumer problems to criminal or civil litigation. We have almost 20 years of collective experience in local, state and federal courts in San Antonio and surrounding counties.
“A Small Firm That Cares”
We get to know each of our clients personally and take the time to learn the specific goals of each person who walks through our doors. We treat our clients with compassion, fairness, and respect, and we work hard to get the best results for each one of them. We take pride in our reputation for client satisfaction and excellence, and for the personal attention, ease of communication and responsiveness we provide to each and every one of our clients.
Although we are a full-service general litigation practice, we focus on several particular areas of the law, including:
Aaron Haas has worked on hundreds of immigration cases in the areas of family immigration, employment-based immigration, asylum and other humanitarian programs, and deportation defense. After studying immigration law at Harvard Law School, he joined the immigration team at Texas RioGrande Legal Aid in San Antonio, Texas. He was the founding director of the immigration clinic at Washington and Lee School of Law.
He is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers’ Guild, and a former member of the State Bar of Texas Committee on Laws Relating to Immigration and Nationality. He has published several articles on immigration law in leading journals and has lectured on immigration law. In 2014, he was board-certified as a specialist in immigration and nationality law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Shannon Salmon-Haas has handled hundreds of family-law cases over almost a decade of practice. Her experience includes contested and uncontested divorces, motions to modify and enforce custody and visitation, protective orders, child protective services cases, adoptions, child support, spousal support, grandparents rights and property divisions.
We also handles probate and guardianship matters. In addition to her legal experience, Shannon brings her compassion, understanding, and empathy to each of her cases. She is a member of the Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas and the San Antonio Bar Association, and was the president of the Christian Legal Society at St. Mary’s Law School.
Looking to get married to someone in the United States? The attorneys at Salmón and Haas can help you work towards getting a K-1 nonimmigrant visa, otherwise known as the fiancee visa. This can help you come to the U.S. and get married within 90 days.
Many people marry U.S. citizens to obtain their status as a permanent resident. The K-1 visa only allows for two different people to come to the U.S. to get married. If you are looking to get permanent status after getting married, Salmón and Haas can help you work towards gaining citizenship.
Proof of Citizenship and Derivative Citizenship:
Have you been in a situation where you’ve needed to prove your citizenship? Do you not have the documentation needed to prove citizenship, even though you know you are a citizen or, at least, have derivative citizenship?
Salmón and Haas can help you work towards getting the documents you need. We can help you find out how to get a birth certificate, passport, certificate of naturalization, and more. Our team can help locate what you need to help you prove that you are in the United States legally.
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals allows for anyone transported to the U.S. before the age of 16 to work here legally. This includes current adults that were brought here whenever they were children as well.
