About Me

Despite his interest in the medical field during his younger days, Mr. Ignacio seriously inquired into the legal profession during his teenage years, when, as a Junior at local Saint Augustine High School, he earned an all-expense paid trip to Sacramento, California to participate in the State Bar of California’s Legal Heritage Institute. He was one of only twenty individuals selected to contribute in the week-long legal advocacy and education experience and was awarded a college scholarship for his exceptional participation.


After graduating from SAHS, Mr. Ignacio attended the University of San Diego and in three years time, graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and with minors in English and Philosophy. During his time at USD, Mr. Ignacio served as the Undergraduate Writing Center Coordinator and tutor, in addition to leading various University Ministry activities. By the time he graduated, Mr. Ignacio earned several distinctions including: Honors Program Graduate, Phi Beta Kappa, Mortar Board, Psi Chi (Psychology Honors Society), and Sigma Tau Delta (English Honors Society).


Mr. Ignacio then enrolled at Hamline University School of Law in Saint Paul, Minnesota after receiving an academic scholarship. However, because of a family illness, Mr. Ignacio returned to San Diego and enrolled at California Western School of Law. While at CWSL, Mr. Ignacio served as a legal intern for the Legal Aid Society where he assisted clients with unlawful detainer issues and helped domestic violence victims acquire restraining orders against their aggressors. For his service, the State Bar of California awarded Mr. Ignacio with the Wiley B. Manuel Award for Pro Bono Services. In addition, Mr. Ignacio served as a legal intern at the Office of Counsel for the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), handling complex government acquisitions and contracts matters. Mr. Ignacio graduated from CWSL in the top 25% of his class, along with earning an academic excellence award.


In addition to practicing law, Mr. Ignacio serves as an officer for his family’s residential rental business, serving 36 rental properties throughout San Diego county. Since he has worked in the residential rental business going back to his teenage years, Mr. Ignacio has acquired a wealth of knowledge about landlord/tenant law and real estate matters.


Mr. Ignacio is a big sports fan, especially baseball, and attends Padres games at Petco Park when he can. He also enjoys swimming, cooking, playing the guitar, and playing basketball during his spare time.
