Jacquelyn Andree Ruiz has dedicated her career to advocating for victims, giving a voice to those rarely heard. From her time with the District Attorney’s offices to her dedication in Personal Injury, Jacquelyn is an advocate for individuals who are unable to stand against a system setup to ignore them.
Growing up in the bifurcated border town of Nogales, Arizona, Jacquelyn’s desire to be an advocate for individuals was instilled at a young age. As native bilingual Spanish speaker, Jacquelyn watched individuals flounder in systems designed to thwart their need for help, pushing her to excel in school and pursue her passion for Law. Jacquelyn’s drive to be a voice drove her to attend Gonzaga University School of Law where she excelled as a Law Review Editor; additionally, highlighting her desire to help those in need, Jacquelyn graduated with a Pro Bono distinction for charitable legal work. After graduating, Jacquelyn was admitted to the California State Bar on her first attempt in January of 2018.
