Meet Daniel Ross

Daniel Ross

Shreveport Immigration Lawyer

In January 2017, Daniel Ross joined Flowers Davis, PLLC. He practices immigration law with a focus on investor/employment-related cases and removal defense. He is highly effective in both nonimmigrant and immigrant cases, assessing employer compliance with federal law (including I-9 audits), petitions for review in federal court, and appeals before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA) and The Administrative Appeals Office (AAO).

He is well known for his work representing employers, investors, and individuals seeking complex benefits including:

  • H-1B and L-1A/L-1B visas for skilled workers seeking temporary work in the United States
  • PERM Labor Certification for employers wishing to sponsor foreign nationals for green cards in employment-based petitions
  • National Interest Waivers, Schedule A petitions for qualified professional nurses and physical therapists, and petitions for individuals of extraordinary ability seeking to immigrate to the United States
  • EB-5 individual and regional center investments
  • Obtaining release from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention
  • Helping individuals fight deportation in removal proceedings

As a native of Linden, Texas, Daniel spent most of his young life in the Lone Star State. He taught English in Monterrey, Mexico upon completion of his undergraduate studies. While teaching in Mexico, he became intensely interested in immigration law, since a large number of his students were young professionals looking to improve their English-speaking abilities in order to advance their careers with American companies. He worked at the Appellate Division of the Second Circuit Public Defender’s Office while earning his law degree. In addition, he worked as a clerk for the City Attorney’s Office in the City of Tallahassee. While clerking, he was chosen after a competitive process to be a research assistant to Wayne Logan, a distinguished criminal procedure scholar.

In 2012, Daniel passed the Florida Bar and started working for the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida as a staff attorney. While he was there, he drafted opinions and orders under the direction of Circuit Court Judges and researched complex legal issues. He began working as an associate attorney with a private firm focused entirely on immigration law. Two years after working at another firm, he began his own private practice in Tampa, Florida. He has worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from individual asylum seekers to large, multi-national corporations.

Daniel moved back home to East Texas in 2017, joining Flowers Davis, PLLC. He spends his time between Tyler, Longview, Shreveport, and Linden. In his free time, he enjoys traveling to Latin America, watching the Florida State Seminoles and Dallas Cowboys, reading, geography, fishing, duck hunting, being outdoors, and spending time with his three nephews and niece. He is a member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma.

Daniel is proficient in Spanish.
