Jesse López is a legal assistant at Gallenberg PC. Mr. López graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish, having minored in Political Science-Public Service. Mr. López provides a wide range of support for our attorneys and helps to facilitate and assist in the delivery of necessary legal services to current and prospective clients.
Mr. López comes to us with a profound passion for helping people – a passion that has translated into assisting people who are navigating through the legal process. Mr. López’s background extends into the fields of both legal and social services. He was presented with his first opportunity to garner legal experience in high school, when he became the only high-school-aged volunteer as a Spanish-language assistant and interpreter with Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County’s Van Nuys and San Fernando Self-Help Legal Access Centers. In college, he interned at the Sacramento County Superior Court’s Family Relations Courthouse also as a Spanish-language assistant and interpreter, helping in and facilitating domestic-violence workshops. His experience in case management spans his work with youth who have been diagnosed with mental health conditions, youth who have been placed in the foster care system, and at-risk youth who have been entangled in the legal system and have been placed on probation. He has also worked with adults who have been deemed intellectually and/or developmentally disabled.
When Mr. López is not in the office, you will find him immersed in the world of music: he is a professional musician with over ten years’ experience, specializing in playing drums and percussion – a craft he began to hone at the age of twelve. He regularly performs live shows and studio/music-video recording sessions all throughout Southern California.Education
