Andrew Rohe

andrew-roheAndrew Rohe is a native of Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Bishop Lynch High School located in East Dallas. He then went on to pursue two Bachelors of Science degrees in Political Science and Spanish from Texas Tech University. During his time at Texas Tech, he had the opportunity to study abroad in Seville, Spain during his senior year. It was during this time that Mr. Rohe was able to hone his skills in the Spanish language and the reason he is bilingual to this date.

After finishing his undergraduate work, Mr. Rohe attended St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, Florida. During his time in law school, Mr. Rohe worked with and in several law office settings. After realizing his interest in immigration law upon completion of his immigration law class, Mr. Rohe worked with the Law Office of Dahlia Walker-Huntington where he put his legal writing skills to work preparing Waivers of Inadmissibility for Mrs. Walker-Huntington’s immigration clients. When he finished his internship with Mrs. Walker-Huntington’s office, he was able to work with the Broward County State Attorney’s Office as a Certified Legal Intern, a program that allows law students to practice law after application to the Florida Bar and under the supervision of a Senior Attorney. It was in this setting that he grew a greater understanding of and an interest in the criminal justice system. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Rohe graduated from law school with his Juris Doctor.

He was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2011 after passing the Florida bar exam on his first attempt. He began working with Kelley Kronenberg, a Fort Lauderdale-based national law firm, in 2010 while he awaited admission to the Florida Bar. It was there where he dedicated his time to workers’ compensation/insurance defense, representing insurance companies and employers defending workers’ compensation/injury claims. He also worked with multinational corporations handling the defense of Jones Act and Longshore and Harbor Workers Act claims. After a little over a year, Mr. Rohe moved to Hernandez, Hicks, and Valois to complete a short stint as an associate also in workers’ compensation/insurance defense.

In 2012, Mr. Rohe was called to return home to Texas. Since that time, he has been assisting individuals and families in navigating the confusing, and sometimes frustrating, world of immigration law by providing services in the following areas: Family and Employment-based immigrant visas, non-immigrant visas, adjustment of status, waivers, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, removing holds, etc. Additionally, Mr. Rohe has a passion for the plaintiffs’ side of injury law. He represent clients in car accidents, truck accidents, and slip and falls, along with other general liability and property loss claims.

In his free time, Andrew loves spending time with his wife, Elizabeth, playing with his two dogs Darley and Faith, exploring the outdoors through hiking, fishing, hunting, adventure sports, and traveling.
