Fluent in Spanish

Most California Plaintiff’s firms advertise Spanish-speaking staff, and sometimes attorneys. With over one-third of Californians identifying as Hispanic or Latino, and over 10 million speaking Spanish, it is important for defense counsel to be able to connect to witnesses and parties in a native language.
