Mario Juarez

As a Santa Maria native, I am deeply committed to my community. My law practice mirrors my community involvement: honest and aggressive commitment to the needs of those I serve. After earning my Bachelor of Arts in Law and Society from UCSB and my Juris Doctorate from the UCLA School of Law, I began my practice back in my hometown. I serve the communities of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura Counties, and all surrounding areas. I am grateful for my fluency in both English and Spanish as this allows me to assist more members of the community.

Currently, my firm focuses on business law and litigation, real estate, and estate planning. Many clients turn to me for help with starting businesses, buying and selling real estate, drafting wills and trusts, and granting powers of attorney. Still, it is important to note that I also have experience in construction litigation, agriculture, appellate court, civil litigation, and personal injury cases.

Ultimately, I strive to build strong relationships and serve the people around me with whatever they need.

Serving the Community through Volunteer Work

Outside of the firm, I spend my time teaching and serving the community at large. I am presently an estate planning instructor through the Allan Hancock Community Education program, and I give lectures on business contracts and formation through the Women’s Economic Venture. Soccer is also an interest of mine, and I coach youth teams during the fall season. However, the biggest joy that I have is volunteering through the church and other local organizations. 

I believe it is important to give back to the church, and I have spent many hours aiding ministries at St. Louis de Montfort, St. John Neumann, and St. Mary of the Assumption with their needs. I have helped with everything from the financial council to religious education and radio programs. 

I deeply believe in serving my community. In 2019 I became the Secretary and Treasurer for the Marian Medical Center Foundation. I currently sit on the advisory board of the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, but I have assisted a variety of populations in the past. My involvement includes working in service of local students and Latino businesses, as well as multiple churches in the Santa Maria area.


I am also a director of the Allan Hancock College Foundation. I am also on the PTO Board of a local school. I enjoy being an advocate for education at every stage of life, and I have also assisted the Endeavor Institute, whose mission is to promote science, technology, engineering, and math to children and teens. Furthermore, I have assisted the Santa Barbara Foundation and the Latino Business Community Council. These organizations are all very close to my heart.
