About Me

Super Lawyers "Rising Star" 2012-2015; focus exclusively on personal injury.  He is the current Vice President of the Riverside County Bar Association.  

 

He graduated with honors from California State University Dominguez Hills, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. While an undergraduate student, besides many community, sports, and school activities, Mr. Serrano worked in Washington D.C. as a Congressional Intern for a California Congressman. 

 

Mr. Serrano was recruited and attended law school on a full scholarship. He received his law degree from the University of La Verne College of Law. While in law school, he was selected to be a member of the moot court honors program and the school’s moot court traveling team in nationwide competitions. He also received a CALI award in the area of Legal Research. Admitted to practice before California State and Federal Courts, he has an active practice in both. He has argued before the California Court of Appeal for the Fifth District and has petitioned for California Supreme Court review. These are remarkable accomplishments for one relatively early in his law career.

 


Mr. Serrano is on the Board of Directors for the Riverside County Bar Association elected as Secretary for the 2012-2013 year and is the Past President of the Riverside County Barristers Association. He is also a member of the Leo A. Deegan American Inn of Court, the Riverside Chapter of an organization devoted to the fostering of excellence in professionalism, ethics, civility, and legal skills. Coming from a multi-lingual heritage, Mr. Serrano also speaks French fluently.


 


Mr. Serrano was named to the Super Lawyers’ 2012 Southern California Rising Stars list, an honor awarded to no more than two and a half percent of attorneys in Southern California each year.

  • Scott H. Talkov

    Jean's ability to work with opposing counsel, insurance companies and clients is impressive, due not only to his strong communication skills, but also to his upbeat personality. If I were looking for a personal injury attorney, I would want one that was well-known to lawyers, judges and the civic community. Lawyers with decades in the Riverside area often do not have the prominence that Jean has in this respect.
