Jessica Estorga

Jessica Estorga has been part of the San Antonio community since 2003. Originally an Austin native, Ms. Estorga moved to San Antonio to attend Trinity University to study political science and religion. After graduation she spent a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA member, helping to promote civic engagement and service-learning on college campuses.

During law school, Ms. Estorga committed herself to develop her advocacy skills by taking part in the school’s moot court and mock trial competition teams as well as working in the immigration clinic. She built upon those skill sets and formed Estorga Law Firm, PLLC straight out of law school.

Ms. Estorga has been honored and recognized for her work in the greater San Antonio community as well of the legal community and has continued to commit herself to advocacy both in and outside of the courtroom.
