Jacqueline Flores

The Law Office of Michael J. Scott has had the privilege to have Jacqueline Flores as part of the Team since 2015.  She is originally from Orange County, California and moved to the Central Coast to find new opportunities and continue her education.  Because of her Guatemalan heritage, Jackie speaks fluent Spanish, which allows her to interpret for all Spanish-speaking clients as their primary language. 

Ever since she was young, she has always wanted to help people in some way and has been equally fascinated by the law.  As a legal Assistant, she finds the nature of the work, coupled with the diversity of cases and client issues that are brought to this law office most appealing.

On a personal level, Jackie is a people person, kind-hearted, and enjoys spending time with her family, friends and traveling.
