Emilio Santiago

Long before Emilio was busy winning big cases in private practice he went to The City university of New York to study political science. This led Emilio to pursue a Juris doctorate at Temple University Law School in Philadelphia. He soon started working day in and day out as a Civil Litigation Trial Attorney for District Counsel 37. For over a decade he fought for a better future for men and women who make the City of New York one of the best in the world.

Emilio’s desire to help other people moved him to give back to the community in the form of teaching. He taught at Passaic Community College teaching commercial law from 2003-2004. Most importantly, he has always specialized in educating clients in knowing their rights as individuals. He has always felt that no matter who you are being well-informed is the best defense.
