Salvador Macias is a criminal defense and immigration lawyer at the Nunez Law Firm. Born in Aguascalientes, Mexico, and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. He graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in Political Science, a B.A. in Transborder Chicano/a Latino/a Studies, a minor in Spanish, and obtained his Juris Doctor.
Being a DACA recipient himself provides Salvador with a unique and personal perspective on immigration law. Growing up, he saw his dad work a construction job in the morning and at a restaurant in the evenings while his mom cleaned offices, all while navigating the immigration system themselves. While helping his mom clean offices he told himself, “One day I’ll have an office like this one.”
Clients walking into Salvador’s office are treated like family. He sees them more as a tio or abuelita looking to improve their immigration status. He knows their journey and his passion for service to others is unparalleled. Salvador prides himself in providing the best service possible. He listens intently to each person’s struggle and their pursuit of the American Dream and then he walks them step by step to how the law as written directly affects their situation. His honesty gives his clients a complete picture of the process and the steps they’ll pursue through his services to accomplish their goals.
Salvador has been recognized for his many talents and contributions to the community. He was recognized as the Ed Pastor Outstanding Graduate in 2017 and received many scholarships to pursue his law studies including Barrett Law Scholarship, Sun Angel Funk Law Scholarship, MALDEF Scholar, and the Valdemar Cordova Scholarship.
He is respected and trusted as a leader which has allowed him to serve on the board of directors for Scholarships A-Z (currently), Education Forward Arizona (Formerly College Success Arizona), and Aguila Youth Leadership.
Salvador is happily married to Karyed and is the proud father of Arya. In his downtime, he enjoys a good Presidente Mix Michelada and watching a good movie. He calls Phoenix his home and feels a responsibility to make it better.
