Lisbette serves as a trial attorney at jD LAW focusing on criminal law and personal injury. She graduated from California State University San Marcos where she majored in Political Science.
The first in her family to obtain a Juris Doctorate degree, she graduated from California Western School of Law in December of 2017.
While in law school, she interned for UURISE, a non-profit organization for immigration law where she helped people apply to become U.S. citizens. She also volunteered at California Rural Legal Assistance, an organization that provides legal assistance to migrant workers in the areas of employment and labor, housing and eviction. Lastly, she interned for a private personal injury firm in downtown San Diego where she assisted in preparing a slip and fall case for trial. While she gained essential skills in various areas of the law, Lisbette’s passion is helping people who have been charged with a crime or have been injured. She has done trials as both lead and assisting counsel, most notably achieving a “not guilty” verdict on a vehicular manslaughter case involving prescription drugs.
She looks forward to a long career in the law.
