Published: 11-07-2017

Vinson & Elkins counsel Beto Cardenas has been selected as a 2017 Top Latino Lawyer by Latino Leaders magazine. Honorees are recognized for their successful law practices, significant cases, professional activity and recognition and community involvement.

Cardenas represents businesses affected by America’s immigration laws, and advises corporate and academic clientele seeking resolution on statutory and regulatory issues. In his state and local tax practice, he assists clients with issues pending before governmental entities, including negotiation of tax abatements on behalf of newly constructed industrial and commercial properties, and industrial district agreements for facilities located in cities’ extra-territorial jurisdictions.

Cardenas also dedicates a substantial portion of his time to making sure nonprofit, civic and cultural organizations and poverty-stricken individuals have high-quality legal representation. He is a member of the board of directors of the Houston Food Bank, Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston, BakerRipley, Texas Tech University School of Law Foundation and the Houston Parks Board. He previously served as an appointee to the Harris County Housing Authority board of commissioners, ushering in as chairman a change in administrative leadership, implementation of accountability measures and guided transparency with reforms in ethics, policies and procedures.

By promoting and publishing stories of Latino success, Latino Leaders strives to showcase stories that demonstrate Latino influence in the United States. The 2017 Top Latino Lawyers list will be featured in the magazine’s November-December issue.
