Jonathan Santiago combines his desire to help those in need with his background in performing arts and is on a journey to become an all-star trial attorney.
Jonathan was born and raised in Hawaii. Though he pursued dramatic acting for several years, Jonathan decided to use these skills to become a lawyer for the people rather than attempting to break into Hollywood. He attended Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska where he received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration. Knowing that he wanted to live and work in Southern California, Jonathan attended law school at UC Irvine and earned his J. D. in 2018.
While in law school, Jonathan clerked for the Office of the Orange County District Attorney and the Office of the Anaheim City Prosecutor. He dedicated over 120 volunteer hours serving Orange County’s elderly population at the Elder Abuse Restraining Order Clinic in Santa Ana.
He is a proud coach of the Woodbridge High School Mock Trial team, the "winning-est" mock trial program in Orange County history. There, he teaches students to be champions inside the courtroom and in their everyday lives.
