Conveniently located near downtown St. James Park, First Legal is the premier provider of litigation support services in San Jose. Our regional headquarters on North 4th Street offers an easy commute to the nearby Santa Clara Superior Court and Santa Clara Family Court. Inside the offices, you’ll find a team of experts who provide comprehensive attorney services for law firms.
San Jose is known as the cultural, political and financial capital of Silicon Valley. It is the largest city in Northern California and it also has the tenth largest population in the country. Despite the infamous and costly housing market, San Jose is a center of innovation and influence. Many major technology companies are headquartered in the city, such as eBay, Adobe, Paypal, Zoom, Samsung, and Cisco Systems. Boosted by this massive corporate presence, the legal market in San Jose is thriving. According to research from the State Bar of California, there are more than 190,000 attorneys with an active license in the state. In District 6 (which includes San Jose & all of Santa Clara County), there are more than 14,500 licensed attorneys. Given the limited size of the district, it is clear that San Jose has become the home of some of the top legal talent in the region.
In this competitive market, the right legal support provider can help you rise above the noise. At First Legal, we have experience working with law firms in highly complex practice areas, such as intellectual property, entertainment, gaming, e-commerce, and social networking. Reach out to our Client Services team to find out how we can give you the resources and support you need for success.
