About me

Contribution and volunteering are important to me. In addition to serving in advisory capacities for varying business and professional groups, I serve and have served on many local boards for non-profits and foundations. I regularly lecture on the power of mindset, goal-setting and education at conferences for disadvantaged youth. I mentor aspiring attorneys and business owners. I connect people and bridge opportunities by sharing my extensive network.

I am a proud father of twin girls! I was born in Puerto Vallarta and raised in San Diego. I practice Yoga to still my mind and maintain vitality.

  • Silvia Leticia Garcia

    I wholeheartedly endorse Mr. Palomino. He is a highly skilled and compassionate attorney. I was able to personally observe his work ethic when he assisted my monolingual (Spanish speaking) parents with their estate planning needs. He skillfully attended to their legal needs, explained things in an understandable fashion and made them feel comfortable with a potentially intimidating process.

  • Antonio Maldonado

    Pablo is a talented attorney that understands estate planning's ins and outs. His ability to help his clients address their specific needs is why I have many times referred to him my clients for their estate planning.
