Jorge completed his Bachelor’s degree in English at Loyola Marymount University. While attending college, Jorge traveled to Washington D.C. to lobby representatives on both local and international issues.

Jorge’s mission in representing his clients is to give them friendly, prompt and effective service that so many attorneys do not afford their clients. He says, “I treat my clients like family. I ensure they are part of the legal process the entire way. Law should be a collaborative environment. I am not happy if they are not happy.” Jorge makes it his focus to not only provide aggressive legal representation, but to also offer accessibility to his clients and ensure they understand and are involved in all aspects of their case.

Jorge is a Los Angeles native who was raised in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles County, and attended high school at Chaminade College Preparatory. He is an avid sports enthusiast and watcher, especially his local Los Angeles teams. His favorite teams include the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Lakers, and the Green Bay Packers. While completing his undergraduate studies in English, Jorge enjoyed traveling up and down the California coast, trying new restaurants and acquiring an interest in California wines and craft beers.
