About me

     I was born in, California and grew up in the Central Valley. I was very active as a young man with Cesar Chavez and the United Farm Workers Union in the sixties and later on with my Father Antonio Orendain and the Texas Farm Workers Union in the seventies and eighties.

     My experiences in my youth, as well as my Father, instilled in me a keen sense of Justice and have inspired me to fight to obtain just compensation for my Clients.

     I have spent my entire career representing the rights of injured laborers, school teachers, police officers and workers in all industries.
