SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - National Hispanic Heritage Month honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans. In honor of the month, KSLA is shining a light on special individuals across the ArkLaTex.

After graduating from Texas A&M University, Jose attended Texas Tech Law School. In 2005, he opened the Jose Sanchez Law Firm in Longview.
