George B. Pacheco, Esq. began his education in Los Angeles at Belmont High School, then transferring to East Los Angeles Community College, where he earned his A.A. Degree in Political Science. From ELAC, he transferred to UCLA, where he pursued a Bachelors degree, double majoring in Political Science and Portuguese. Realizing he wanted to progress his career to a professional field, he found the area of Law and legal studies extremely interesting. He also had the desire to help people in from the same socioeconomic background he experienced growing up. It is then that he decided he would attend Law School in hopes of achieving a Jurid Doctorate degree.
With his credentials from ELAC and UCLA, he applied and was granted admission to Northrup University School of Law. Northrup's approach was more appealing because of the "practical" nature of its course teachings. Concurrently utilizing his musical talents, he payed his way through law school while managing several bands in the Los Angeles area. Upon granduating law school in 1981 with his Juris Doctorate, he began prepping for one of the most demanding exams administered in the U.S. - the California State Bar Examination. After a year of studying and sacrifice, he was able to pass the CA State Bar exam, and began practicing in 1983. Since then Attorney Pacheco has been constantly learning and analyzing the law.
He began his legal career at a private practice, and eventually was offered a position with one of the most respected law firms in Los Angeles County - Guerrero, Moreno & Becerra (now Moreno Becerra & Casillas). It was at this point that his legal experience grew continually going up against Ivy League attorneys and large defense law firms with great success. Being always punctual, well-prepared, and a very diligent litigator, Attorney Pacheco has gained the respect and admiration of many judges he has appeared before, and counsels he has appeared against. Attorney Pacheco eventually migrated to his own office and began his private general practice in the City of Montebello. Til this day, he continues to serve the Montebello community, not only through providing legal services to the public, but also serving as the Montebello Police K-9 association president, Commissioner of Financial Investment, as a member and sponsor of the Montebello Chamber of Commerce, and as a member of the Rotary International Montebello chapter
Attorney Pacheco has cultivated the experience and knowledge over these 29 years to become one of the area's most respected attorneys in a variety of areas of practice.
Today, roughly 80% of Attorney Pacheco's clients are retained through referral, due to the reputation he has earned over his many years in practice. Favorable results have also become a staple of his practice.
Perhaps the biggest attribute of his business is the "family-oriented" style he continues to offer his clients. In striving to build lasting relationships with his clients, making them feel as if they are consulting a friend, rather than just an attorney, clients continue to offer calls of praise and thanks for the "job-well-done". In June 2013 George was honored with the 2013 Business of the year Montebello Chamber of Commerce Leadership Award for all his outstanding business citizenship in Montebello.
