Attorney Carlos Trujillo
Carlos was born and raised in San Antonio de los Altos, Venezuela. At age 18 he moved to the United States because he believed that in the United States his dreams were possible if he was willing to work hard to achieve them. However, this decision brought struggles, challenges and achievements that have helped shape the attorney that he is today.
Carlos began his studies at the LDS Business College, where he earned a Degree in Business and Accounting Certificate. He continued his education at the University of Utah, earning his BA in Political Science. While studying at the University of Utah, he was also able to be an intern for the IRC (International Rescue Committee). And he was awarded the Pete Suazo Award from the Hinckley Institute of Politics, for his outstanding work as an intern. Carlos attended Law School at Thomas M. Cooley in Michigan, where he graduated Cum Laude. And to complete his education, he spent his last semester working for the Honorable Judge Thorne in the Court of Appeals of the State of Utah.
Carlos is licensed to practice law in Utah, and is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
Carlos is available during limited times as a speaker for seminars, in order to educate the community. If interested, please contact our office directly to inquire about his availability
Attorney Sergio Garcia
Sergio believes that justice applies to all.
As a child of immigrant parents, he saw firsthand the definition of hardwork as his parents worked from sun up to sun down in the fields of Delano, California. Sergio vowed never to take for granted his parents’ efforts to provide for him and his younger brother and sister. His family and him eventually moved to Utah.
During his teenage years, Sergio went to live with his grandparents in Juchipila, Zacatecas, Mexico. A time that taught him valuable lessons. A time that he enjoyed. A time when he discovered his inner cowboy.
After returning from Mexico, Sergio held many employments - as a dishwasher, warehouse worker, landscaper, banker, and among others.
Sergio decided to become an attorney after he witnessed many injustices. He knew that if he was an attorney he could do more.
At the University of Wyoming, Sergio’s passion for criminal law and immigration law developed. Sergio assisted at the human rights clinic, Rocky Mountain Innocence Center, and served as student director for the Defender Aid Clinic.
His experience as public defender grew his belief that everyone deserves justice. Everyone needs that one person helps to tell the government, “You’re not easily going to take my freedom or send me back to my home country to an almost certain death. I’m not alone!! You are going to be in a fight!!”
