Jacksonville Immigration Attorney
Attorney Jose Moreno about his life Experience
I founded Moreno Law Group in Jacksonville, Florida because of a deep rooted interest in the life of those in need and a particular lack of client centered Immigration Legal Representation in the community. Growing up, I moved around quite a bit following my Father’s duties as a physician in the United States Air Force. I lived in Texas, New Jersey, and Maine all before the 4th grade. We eventually settled in Jacksonville where I lived until I graduated from The Bolles School in 2000.
After high school I attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. I enjoyed my experience at Emory and received a degree in Financial Economics in 2004. While in Atlanta I met my wonderful wife Mariam. Her selfless contributions to me throughout my life have been a major factor in my successes and personal triumphs.
I continued my education in 2004 and moved to Philadelphia, PA where I attended Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. Temple Law is renowned for courtroom education and a particular emphasis on public service. In its 2013 edition, U.S. News & World Report ranked Temple University Beasley School of Law 2nd nationally in Trial Advocacy. At Temple, I trained under the direct guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable Immigration Attorney during a year long externship. I was immersed in the practical application and academic theory of Immigration law beginning in 2006. I counseled immigration clients and attended Immigration Court Hearings in Philadelphia, PA for a United Way non-profit named the Nationalities Service Center.
Through my experiences helping clients with their legal challenges during this unique immigration training, I discovered my passion as an attorney: Immigration Law. In 2007 I graduated from law school and moved back to Jacksonville hungry to apply the tools I learned to the practice of Immigration Law. I successfully sat for the Florida Bar Exam in July of 2007.
I was eager to continue my legal career, but life, as it does to us all, had other plans for my next 3 years. In November of 2007 I was pinned in a vehicle for nearly an hour as it caught fire after a car accident. I suffered deep burns to 70% of my body but miraculously survived. With the love, support, and tireless dedication of my family and community I persevered through more than 15 surgeries and 3 years of physical rehabilitation. As a Burn Survivor I learned that life challenges are common to us all, but the support group you choose to have around you at your time of need makes all the difference.
