“There’s no substitute for hard work. I’ve learned that if you want results, you have to put in more time and the energy than the rest. That’s why I put in the extra effort to obtain the best outcome for my clients, and I never settle for ‘good enough.’ My clients’ needs are my needs and I utilize every tool at my disposal to fight for their interests.”
Persistence, dedication, and passion – these are just some of the traits that make Tristan Espinosa an exceptional advocate. Since joining the firm, Tristan has demonstrated that he goes the extra mile and will not stop until he has exhausted all potential avenues to put his clients in the best possible position. Tristan has worked on a wide variety cases from start to finish, and his hard work and dedication has paid off for his clients in a variety forms, including settlements, dismissals, and judgments.
Tristan’s fierce work ethic is also reflected in his academic career: not only did Tristan graduate cum laude from the Chapman University School of Law, but he received multiple awards for his academic performance such as CALI awards for the highest grade in Constitutional Law and Civil Procedure, and the National Order of Scribes Award for outstanding legal writing. In addition, Tristan is a published author of the Chapman Law Review.
Tristan exemplifies the core qualities that Lanak & Hanna values in all of its attorneys – an unrelenting desire to advocate for his clients and protect their rights, and the ability to find straightforward solutions to complex problems.
