Mr. Garcia graduated from Cal Northern School of Law in 2009 and pass the California Bar Exam that year. However, Mr. Garcia was denied admission to the state bar due to his status as an undocumented immigrant. After a lengthy battle, Mr. Garcia’s case made national news when the California Supreme Court, in a matter of first impression, ruled that Mr. Garcia could be admitted to the state bar and be eligible to practice law. (In re Garcia (2014) 58 Cal.4th 440). Since then, Mr. Garcia has maintained a successful personal injury practice and has created the Sergio C. Garcia Foundation dedicated to assisting students in pursuing higher education.
