Jerusalem Beligan California Employment Lawyer

California Employment Law Attorney

To Jerusalem Beligan, justice is much more than a word. To Jerusalem, "Justice" is a calling, a mission and his hope for the future.

Pursuit of Justice for All - The "Calling"

California employment law attorneyJerusalem is a Southern California native that had a lifelong dream of becoming an attorney. One of Jerusalem's heroes, his father, was 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.

Civil Prosecutor - The "Mission"

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.

Devoted Husband and Father

Jerusalem resides in Ladera Ranch, California with his wife, Jackie, and three children. Jackie is a 7th grade English and English Language Development teacher at Bernice Ayer Middle School ("BAMS") in San Clemente, CA. Jackie and Jerusalem's oldest daughter, Jaylene, is a high school sophomore. Their son, Jayden, is in the second grade. Jerusalem named his youngest daughter "Justice" because of his devotion to the law and hopes that one day she may follow in her father's and grandfather's footsteps. Jerusalem envisions "Justice" practicing law in the family tradition or better yet, presiding in court as a "Judge Justice." When he takes time for himself he enjoys being active, playing basketball (the "Rocket" is still quick) and spending time with his family.
