I am a lawyer with 10 + years of combined experience in litigation and in-house corporate matters.

I initiated my legal career primarily as a commercial attorney servicing small technology companies in their start-up phase and gained experience in licensing, equity, leases, and a wide array of general procurement matters. I have also gained experience in the negotiation of complex SaaS and professional services agreements in the cloud content storage and management technology sector.

As a litigator, I have extensive experience in business and civil rights litigation, ranging from client counseling at the inception of a case to all phases of discovery, motion practice, court hearings, mediation, trial preparation and settlement. I have litigated wage and hour, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, national origin discrimination, personal injury, breach of contract, commercial leases, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty matters. I am admitted to practice law in all California State and some Federal courts.


“Jose is very bright, effective and an excellent provider of legal service and skill for myself and the clients I have referred. He is creative, detail-oriented, and has consistently produced excellent results. I am privileged to call him a colleague and a friend.”

“I was lucky to have Jose on my side. He clearly explained the law and my rights in a manner that I could understand and use. When I finally made some critical decisions, I was quite comfortable with them. Before engaging Jose, I wasn’t sure what happened or what to do next.”

“Jose is a very capable, well-rounded attorney with solid experience in start-up environments and transactional matters. He does great work with SaaS agreements and the variety of issues that arise in a cloud-computing environment. Jose is very easy to work with, friendly and highly professional.”

“Jose was an attorney at my law firm for two years. Jose is a sharp, versatile attorney with great litigation skills. Jose’s background in both technology start-ups and litigation and his innate intuition provide him with unique and creative problem solving skills. Jose has tremendous initiative is easy to get along with and trustworthy.”
