Filex Sanchez

– Founder and Certified Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law

My parents were immigrants to the United States, and I appreciate all of their hard work to be able to offer my family a better life. My father founded his immigration consulting practice in 1972 and taught me everything he knew about the process of immigration. After I attended law school at the University of San Diego, I thought I was going to go into corporate law, but after a short time in that field I missed something. In immigration law, I am able to make a profound impact on the lives of individuals, and that is extremely rewarding. This is why I do what I do. I’m in the business of uniting families, realizing dreams, and securing futures for the next generation of Americans.

My parents were immigrants. I understand your challenges.

Union Law Group is the culmination of all of my years of education and hard work, as well as the tremendous work and effort of my parents. I am honored for the opportunity to serve my community and make a difference in the lives of so many hardworking families.

Guillermo Carrasco

Attorney Licensed to Practice in Mexico Only

I was born and raised in Tijuana, and living in the busiest border-crossing city in the world inspired me—I wanted to pursue a career where I could work with people in both sides of the border. I became a permanent resident and then a U.S. Citizen through my dad before I was 21 years old, what gave me the opportunity to study a L.L.M from the University of San Diego School of Law.

Being able to have the opportunity to thrive professionally is what motivated me to practice immigration law, because I enjoy helping my clients pursue their dreams in the United States.


To have lived the immigration process allows me to understand the advantages and opportunities that are given by immigrating to the United States.

Today I am running a Union Law Group office in Tijuana, where we help our clients with Mexican and international Law. I was able to improve myself by a decision my dad made, so I feed very proud to do the same for my clients.


Leonardo Cortés

Lawyer with a license to practice in Mexico

After finishing my law degree at the Autonomous University of Baja California, I began to practice my profession at the firm "Abogados Cortés y Tapia" in my hometown, where I developed an interest in international relations and immigration issues. After a couple of years of private practice, I joined the INAMI (National Migration Institute), where I gained professional experience, and the great opportunity to contribute to my community.

The most important for me is my family, and that's why I am here, to achieve the union of families, breaking barriers and crossing borders.

My wife Vanessa immigrated to me, and today I am an American citizen, just as I immigrated, you can immigrate. I have been at Union Law Group since 2013, it has been a great decision, I have been able to develop in the immigration field, helping a large number of people to fix their papers, legalize their immigration status and have a better future.


My great passion is helping this border community, I like to read, travel and enjoy my family.
