Ginger Young has practiced in the Immigration Law Section of Flowers Davis since 2009.  Tyler Immigration Law is a full-service practice ranging from family-based cases, employment based cases, permanent residency cases, naturalization and DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) cases.  She is a member of AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association), a select group of highly trained immigration lawyers who are on the cutting edge and daily monitoring of changes in the immigration field.  She and her entire in-office staff are fluent in Spanish. 

Ginger has long been an advocate for the vulnerable.  During law school, she interned for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and later with the firm of Fanning, Harper & Martinson.  After graduating from law school, she continued with the firm of Fanning, Harper & Martinson primarily representing governmental entities and school districts in employment and civil rights litigation.  Ms. Young continued her labor and employment defense practice at Thompson & Knight prior to joining Flowers Davis in 2000.  Her first nine years at Flowers Davis were focused on employment law and civil rights litigation, primarily defending law enforcement and governmental agencies.
