Attorney Charlotte Lang is of counsel with Cano Immigration, PLLC.  She is licensed to practice law in the State of Texas, and in her over thirty-year career as an attorney, she has appeared in numerous County, State and Appellate Court cases. As someone who has previously handled worksite enforcement cases, before the Office of the Chief Administrative Hearing Officer, her focus in the Firm is on employment-based and I-9 compliance cases.  

Charlotte worked for twenty years before retiring from the Office of the Chief Counsel of the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement where she served as an Assistant Chief Counsel. As an Assistant Chief Counsel for the DHS she appeared before the Executive Office of Immigration Review, in removal and detention proceedings, as well as before the Board of Immigration Appeals.  Also, for a number of years she served as DHS liaison with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices for the Southern District and Eastern District of Texas where she assisted with responses to habeas petitions and civil suits against the agency. 

She graduated from the University of Tulsa with a major in journalism, and later from the University of Houston Law Center obtaining a Doctor of Jurisprudence.  She then became an intern for State District Judge John Martin, of the 2nd 9th District Court of Montgomery County, Texas. During her law school she also worked as a student attorney intern at the Inmate Legal Services office at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.  After being licensed, she served there as a staff attorney and later as a supervising staff attorney, where she practiced criminal, immigration and civil law.  

Prior to pursuing a legal career, Charlotte was a social worker handling child protective service cases in Oklahoma and in Texas. She is passionate about helping the most vulnerable and the underserved members in our community, and since retirement from DHS, she has volunteered for the Harris County Public Defender’s office DNA review team. She has also recently handled criminal, family law, and probate cases on a pro bono basis as well.
