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.
