Attorney Alberto Muñoz

Alberto Muñoz is not your typical attorney. He was born in the small town of Emiliano Zapata Nexatengo, in Puebla, Mexico. Population 819. At the age of seven he and his family left Nexatengo and embarked on a journey that ultimately led them to South Central Los Angeles. He was the first in his family to graduate from high school. While in high school he worked in sweatshops ironing dresses and making t-shirts in the downtown garment district. After attending Santa Monica College and being exposed to the writings of Oscar “Zeta” Acosta, Mr. Munoz decided to become an attorney. He transferred to UC Berkeley and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Sociology in 2005. 

Prior to attending law school, Mr. Munoz worked for Loeb & Loeb in their entertainment litigation department for three years. He attended USC Gould School of Law (Class of 2011). While in law school, Alberto was voted president of both the Latino Law Student Association and the Student Bar Association.

Early in his legal career Mr. Munoz focused primarily on business litigation. Seeking jury trial experience, however, Mr. Munoz took on a position as a trial attorney for one of the biggest eviction defense non-profits in Southern California. In his role as a trial attorney Mr. Munoz tried over 30 cases to verdict and along the way found a way to give back to those in need. 

Today, Mr. Munoz, through the Law Office of Alberto Munoz, zealously represents tenants in unlawful detainer jury trials. When Mr. Munoz is not in court he enjoys listening to Los Tigres Del Norte, Rigo Tovar and Los Bukis.
