    Attorney Richard A. Gump Jr. is the founder and president of Richard A. Gump Jr., P.C., in Dallas, Texas. From his law firm, Mr. Gump focuses exclusively on all areas of immigration and nationality law, assisting clients throughout Texas and around the world who wish to live and work in the United States. Throughout his long and illustrious career spanning nearly 45 years, Mr. Gump has helped thousands of individuals, families and companies with their legal issues involving any of the following immigration matters:

    ·         Permanent immigrant visas

    A 1969 graduate of The University of Texas at Austin, Mr. Gump returned to his alma mater and obtained his doctor of jurisprudence from The University of Texas School of Law in 1972. The following year, the State Bar of Texas admitted him to practice, and Mr. Gump began his legal career representing businesses and financial institutions with their commercial transactions and other corporate legal matters before ultimately concentrating his practice on immigration law.

    From his work as a business law attorney, Mr. Gump gained valuable experience that makes him well-suited to handle the unique demands of commercial clients looking to hire foreign talent. He has extensive experience handling matters related to worksite enforcement and compliance, and he routinely advises companies on strategic planning and risk assessment as it relates to hiring and retaining personnel from outside the country.

    Widely regarded as one of the top immigration attorneys in Texas, Mr. Gump is routinely sought for his in-depth knowledge of immigration law. Fully committed to his practice, he is active with the international and labor employment law sections for both the American Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas, and he holds memberships in several other professional legal associations as well.
