The Law Office of Jamahl C. Kersey
San Diego,

For over a decade, our founding attorney, Jamahl Kersey, has defended against criminal matters such as 1st degree murder, major drug conspiracy cases, and DUI, including defense of those who may be facing deportation.

A Desire To Help

Mr. Kersey’s desire to help people began during his early childhood. While growing up in a diverse community, he saw firsthand the struggles many families face, particularly immigrant families living in his neighborhood.

He saw their fears when they were forced to answer to the police. He saw how deportations split up families. Mr. Kersey knew he wanted to help people in similar situations someday, ones who are often unfamiliar with the U.S. legal process and their rights.

He became fluent in Spanish and later earned a college degree. Jamahl later became a successful immigration lawyer and criminal defense advocate.

Today, he uses his Spanish degree and knowledge of the law to counsel immigrant families about the system and individuals who are facing criminal charges and are desperately looking for an advocate who knows the law and can help them.
