July 27, 2012, Los Angeles, CA – With over 28 years of success in the Los Angeles market, legal brand Los Defensores will undertake nationwide expansion. Expansion will begin in the Las Vegas market on June 1, 2012. Los Defensores has helped hundreds of thousands of Latinos in California and is ready to continue its unparalleled success in Nevada.
Maryann Walker founded Los Defensores in 1984, as a solution for the underrepresentation of the Latino community in the legal system. Working as a translator in the courts of Los Angeles early in her career, Maryann saw that people were denied equal justice because they could not speak English. After more than two and a half decades of service to the Latino population Maryann says “My commitment to helping the community access exceptional attorneys is as strong today as when I founded the company more than 28 years ago.”
This wave of expansion follows Los Defensores’ growth across California. In recent years the brand has moved into San Diego, Central Valley and Northern California, having seen tremendous development and achieving dominance throughout the state.
Jaime Jarrin, Los Defensores spokesperson and Hall of Fame Spanish Language commentator for the Dodgers, says of Los Defensores’ long-time success, “We began helping the Latino community in Los Angeles, since then we have moved into Northern California and it’s good knowing we provide access to legal services for so many people across California. I want to congratulate and thank Maryann and her staff for their dedication, hard-work and continued success.”
In regards to Los Defensores’ growth founder and CEO, Maryann Walker stated, “Los Defensores dominates the Hispanic legal market and we plan to spread our mission of helping more Latinos gain unmatched access to attorneys. Los Defensores’ dedication to providing free legal assistance to the Latino community allows us to continue being a leader after so many years.”
