My name is Jose E. Barrera the chief Attorney at the J. Barrera Law Firm. I was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas and attended W. B. Ray High School. I then furthered my education by moving to San Antonio, Texas where I was accepted to St. Mary’s University to obtain a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies. I earned my Law Degree 2003 from the University Of Houston School Of Law. My general hobbies include fishing, boxing, watching football, and mentoring young athletes at a local boxing gym in Corpus Christi.
After Graduation I started a lawfirm and after fifteen years and thousands of clients I am proud to say I still learn every day. In 2010 I moved back to the South Texas Area in hopes of bring my legal expertise closer to my family, friends, and fellow citizens of the coastal bend community. Not only has our firm maintained consistent clientele in the South Texas area, but we have also successfully handled cases dealing with civil matters, personal injury, and product liability all over the state of Texas and other areas of the United States as well.
Furthermore, with the new look and launch of J.Barrera Law I have tremendous optimism for the future of our business. The virtues of patience and understanding are essential in my everyday business approach and I instill those qualities in every case I handle. My staff and I have worked extremely hard to provide our clients with a legal service that is top of the line. Thank you, and please keep in mind J. Barrera Law Firm for your general legal and Personal Injury concerns.
