It has not been without a lot of hard work and dedication that Jessica Dominguez has achieved as much as she has in her life and career. She came to the United States from Peru in search of better educational opportunities when she was just 14. But what she was faced with were many obstacles. Although she had obtained her high school diploma before leaving Peru, she took high school classes for almost a year after arriving in the United States.
At this point Jessica Dominguez was forced to drop out so that she could work full-time, but she continued to take ESL classes at night. She knew that if she was going to succeed, she needed to learn English. Between taking classes and working multiple jobs, she managed to obtain a firm grasp of the language, never giving up. She continued to refine her knowledge and skills over the years. When she was 18 she got married and promised herself that she would accomplish her goal of returning to school and becoming an attorney.
While raising her children she decided to go back to school and earn her degree. She spent 15 years at home raising her children while obtaining a valuable education. She earned her undergraduate degree from Pepperdine University, and then went on to graduate from the University of La Verne College of Law earning her Juris Doctor degree with honors. Through her studies she gained an in-depth and comprehensive understanding of the law. She has continued to build on this solid foundation over the years, helping her to more effectively support her clients and advocate for the rights of immigrants.
One factor that sets Jessica Dominguez apart and allows her to better connect with her clients and the public is the fact that she personally understands their struggles. She too immigrated to the United States. She knows first-hand the challenges that people face and how to help them overcome these obstacles. Through her experience and education, she is well versed in the laws and policies surrounding immigration. Her top-notch legal representation and passion for her work have earned her and her team awards from election officials and community agencies.

Through her work Jessica hopes to see her children become successful in their own lives. They have always been by her side, and she has instilled in them the importance of community service and fighting for their rights. Her oldest son plans to follow in her footsteps and pursue a career in law, and her younger son just enrolled in college.
