Francesca Torres


Francesca is a Northern California native raised on a family rice farm. Growing up on a farm taught Francesca the value of hard work, dedication, and perseverance—skills she now brings to her law practice. Before pursuing law school, Francesca worked as a legal secretary and later a paralegal, which allowed her the opportunity to learn that attention to detail and communication are key in the practice of law. While in law school, Francesca honed her legal research and writing skills as the Chief Comment Editor of the law review, and found a passion for civil litigation while interning with Chief Magistrate Judge Newman.

When not at the office, Francesca enjoys reading, walking in her neighborhood, playing board games, spending time with family and friends, and cuddling with her golden retriever, Luna.
