Jáuregui and Associates is the realized dream of a once 15-year-old immigrant from Teocaltiche, Jalisco, Mexico.

Arturo Jáuregui worked all types of jobs to get himself through school, until spending a large part of the 1970s as a paralegal providing immigration services in the Pilsen community.  After law school, he returned to Chicago to continue providing legal services and re-joined the fight for civil rights.

He served as Regional Counsel at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) and spent 10 years fighting for the civil rights of Latinos. As a young attorney Arturo argued a bilingual education case before the 7th Circuit Federal Court, which resulted in federal guidelines establishing bilingual education in Illinois. In 1990, he was the lead attorney and architect in a federal voting rights case which resulted in the creation of the first Latino U.S. congressional district in the Midwest. Arturo also testified before the U.S. Congress in support of fair immigration laws.

Mr. Jáuregui hung out his shingle as Jáuregui and Associates in 1995. Since then, they have won many multi-million dollar settlements in favor of plaintiffs.

Today, even after all the changes in the law, Mr. Jáuregui continues to represent the hard working blue collar folks of Chicago who have been wronged by corporations and unscrupulous employers, especially those dealing with language barriers.  In 1998 Mr. Jáuregui joined forces with Edward J. Santiago.  For almost three decades, the firm has served as a preeminent provider of personal injury legal services as well as a conduit to other legal services.

Over the years, Arturo’s level of enthusiasm, dedication, and nuanced perspective to the law and his dedication to the community has influenced a younger generation of attorneys, and he continues to do so right in the heart of Pilsen.


Arturo Jáuregui

Arturo started Jáuregui and Associates from the ground up.  Before that, he had spent 10 years at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), with four of those years as director.  After spending 28 years in the downtown area, with many great victories for clients, Arturo then made it his mission to be closer to the community that gave him his start. He salvaged a building that had been abandoned for over 25 years.  Today, the Pilsen Law Center is home to Jáuregui and Associates, and La Luz Art Gallery.

Arturo is a huge proponent of art and culture programming and he hopes it will remain a big part of the cultural fabric of the Pilsen community.  A fond collector of art and a supporter of local artists and artisans, his passion for the arts has contributed a great gallery space for the local community to experience as well as a great gathering space for special events. In his ongoing quest to protect the community and its residents, Arturo is now spearheading the effort to declare Pilsen a Cultural Sanctuary.

Mr. Jáuregui has consistently secured significant settlements for his clients in all cases of personal injury law.
