Mr. Borges received his legal education at Santa Clara University, School of Law. Prior to that he studied the art and practice of argument and advocacy while earning his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from California State University in Chico, California. Mr. Borges takes pride in the fact that his work is aimed at preserving individual freedom and the continued exercise of the right of each of us to choose our own path in life.
Trial is Mr. Borges' favorite thing. He has been recognized as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in Northern California by The National Trial Lawyers. While most criminal cases do not end up in front of a jury, having a lawyer with proven trial skills sends a message to the opposition that cannot be ignored.
