A life-long Orange County resident, Jessica Macias obtained her Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice from California State University, Fullerton. At the same time, she worked on a paralegal certificate from her local community college. Jessica hopes to grow more in her Legal Assistant role to utilize her diverse background.

Prior to joining CMBG3 Law, Jessica worked in several other law firms in supportive positions, acclimating herself to the fast-paced nature of the field. There is no better lesson than preparing seven boxes worth of binders for a trial the following week. In each of her roles, Jessica always strove to exemplify adaptability and a willingness to learn new skills. Flexibility in any situation has been an invaluable tool in her working life.

Outside of work, you can usually find Jessica’s nose in a book. Though she will usually give anything a try,her favored genres are fantasy and science fiction.
