To Jerusalem Beligan, justice is much more than a word. To Jerusalem, “Justice” is a calling, a mission and his hope for the future.
Jerusalem is a Southern California native that had a lifelong dream of becoming an attorney. Jerusalem’s father, one of his heroes, was also an attorney.
Jerusalem grew up watching his father serving the people of the Philippines. He also grew up watching the admiration that people had for his father and his father’s accomplishments for them.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Jerusalem became an attorney for the people, like it was a family calling, something the Beligans are called to do. Jerusalem is grateful to his father for the role model he set for Jerusalem and for mentoring him through the process of becoming a people’s attorney. Following the family tradition, Jerusalem is passing on what he learned from his father to his children.
Jerusalem considers himself a “civil prosecutor”, an attorney who’s chosen mission is representing everyday people, protecting their rights and pursuing their interests. In other words, being an everyday hero to everyday people.
Jerusalem is passionate about standing up for people who have been wronged. He enjoys and excels at facing off against corporate giants, insurance companies and abusive employers who have wronged clients, just the way he faced off against much bigger and seemingly stronger opponents when excelling in high school football.
Raised in Diamond Bar, CA, Jerusalem was an outstanding student and athlete at Roland High School. He played on the varsity football and track teams, which is where he got his nick name, “The Rocket” due to his quickness and ability to avoid tacklers.
He graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Riverside in 1997. His studious work earned memberships in Phi Beta Kappa, the Golden Key National Honor Society, and the only honor society for college and university students of government in the United States, Pi Sigma Alpha.
He went on to obtain his Juris Doctor from Southwestern University School of Law in 2000. That same year he passed the California State Bar, and at the young age of twenty five he began practicing law.
