Lubbock attorney Noe Valles will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award at homecoming on Oct. 25-27.

Noe Valles, the pre-litigation managing partner of Glasheen, Valles and Inderman law firm in Lubbock, will be honored as one of Wayland Baptist University’s Distinguished Alumni Award winners at the homecoming banquet on Friday, October 26.

A native of a small town outside Juarez, Mexico, Valles and his family immigrated to the United States when he was a boy. He grew up in Plainview and earned his degree at Wayland in 1988. He then began teaching history at Plainview High School, spending two years there before enrolling in Texas Tech University School of Law and pursuing his law degree.

Valles has practiced law since 1994, providing personal injury services in English and Spanish and handling cases through Texas and New Mexico. As a bilingual attorney, Valles is proud to overcome language barriers and be an advocate for Spanish-speaking clients. He is licensed to practice in Texas and New Mexico state courts and in the U.S. District Court for the Northern and Eastern Districts in Texas.

Noe is married to Irma Valles, who earned her degree from Wayland in 1999.

“Noe Valles is a tireless advocate for injury victims and has helped build the Lubbock law firm into a reputable and busy practice. We are proud to have someone of Noe’s caliber as part of our Wayland family,” said Teresa Young, alumni director. “Despite his accomplishments, Noe is proud of his roots in Plainview and Wayland and is very deserving of this honor.”

The dinner banquet will feature a barbecue meal from Weekends. Tickets are $15 and require advance reservations by October 19 by calling Young at (806) 291-3600.
