Get to Know Pacifica – Jacob Zuniga
This week in Pacifica’s “Get to Know” series, we are highlighting Jacob Zuniga. Jacob’s litigation practice spans all phases of a case from pre-litigation evaluation and discovery to dispositive motion practice, trial, and if needed, appeal.
Why did you choose your area of practice and what do you like most about it?
My decision to pursue litigation continues to be driven by my interest in several substantive legal matters, including those which pertain to securities, consumer protection, intellectual property and commercial law, the False Claims Act, and class action defense. Practicing in those areas continues to provide me insights into issues public and private businesses and public-private partnerships face in various legal contexts, and has allowed me to assist clients with some of their most sensitive matters. These are the aspects of my practice from which I derive great professional and personal fulfillment.
Why did you choose to practice law at Pacifica Law Group?
My decision to practice at Pacifica was motivated by the firm’s proven track record in complex disputes, the opportunity to practice with and learn from the firm’s esteemed partners, and my shared commitment to public outreach and service.
WHAT KINDS OF VOLUNTEER, PHILANTHROPIC, OR COMMUNITY EVENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU?
In addition to serving the WSBA’s Section on Antitrust and Consumer Protection as a member of its Executive Committee, I enjoy volunteering and helping members of my community obtain access to justice.
What is something others might find surprising about you?
I’m constantly in search of a great grilled cheese.
What is your favorite past adventure?
Without a doubt, my pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago.
