Zachary I. Avina is originally from a small, farming town in Northern California, but has been a happy San Diego transplant for the last three years.

He earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Philadelphia University in 2015, with concentrations in Management and Psychology. Mr. Avina graduated from California Western School of Law in 2018, where he focused his studies on business law, public interest law, and labor and employment law. He is currently finishing up his Master of Business Administration, which will be completed in early 2019.

During his law school career, Mr. Avina interned for several, local law firms, including the Legal Aid Society of San Diego and Wilkinson Mazzeo, PC. In these positions, he culminated his passion for advocacy and for helping small businesses succeed. Mr. Avina was on the Dean’s Honor List for Academic Achievement during his upperclassman years, and he was also an active member of the Pro Bono Honors Society. In his last year of law school, Mr. Avina was honored to receive the James P. O’Neil Scholarship, which is awarded to a student with sufficient academic merit who demonstrates an interest and proficiency in pro bono work and business.

When not assisting the firm’s clients, Mr. Avina serves as the Executive Director of his own nonprofit organization that is aimed at providing greater employment opportunities for the formerly incarcerated, while also providing support for the small businesses that hire them. He is also an active volunteer at local correctional facilities and loves traveling, spending time with his family, and reading.
