James Filippi, Esq.

James Filippi

Principal Attorney

Our firm’s founding attorney took his first oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California at 18 years old.

Many years later, he nearly died serving that oath, an incident that sent him into early retirement from law enforcement and left him with a profound sense of emptiness.

When he first read the attorney’s oath, the one required for all attorneys to take before being admitted to the State Bar, he recognized the resemblance to the oath taken so many years prior and knew he was back where he belonged.

The legal system isn’t easy to navigate, and we hate to see it when people frequently get run over by it. With the Filippi Law Firm, P.C., you aren’t alone.

We won’t allow you to be disadvantaged. Not on our watch.

Satisfied Client Stories


Was going in for heart surgery in a week and needed an Estate Plan ASAP! Jennifer and the staff at Filippi Law Firm managed to put together my plan, which was rather extensive, within that time frame. This gave me the peace of mind I needed in case the worst happened. Luckily it wasn’t need but I now have it in case I ever do. Great staff and wonderful to work with. Wouldn’t go to anyone else. Would give 10 stars if I could.

We recently relocated from the Bay Area and wanted to update our over-25-year-old Living Trust. He did an outstanding job. He also gave us some contacts in Texas to update some property we own there.
