Jessica Lynn Sepulveda

Specialty: Personal Injury, Civil Litigation Law

Jessica Lynn Sepulveda was born and raised in Arcadia Park, an area of West Dallas, where she attended high school at Bishop Dunne in Oak Cliff and developed a love for the law while watching her father serve the community as Justice of the Peace for Precinct 5-1 in Oak Cliff.

After high school Jessica attended St. Mary’s University in San Antonio on scholarship where she graduated cum lade receiving a Bachelor of Arts Degree in both Political Science and English. Continuing the pursuit of her passion, Jessica then moved to Houston where she received her law degree from Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

Upon completion of her degree, she knew immediately that she wanted to return to Dallas to serve her community, just as she had watched her father do for so many years. Within in her first year of practicing law she settled her first million dollar case and she has only been honing her skills since then. For over 10 years she’s never shied away from a court room; she has been successfully fighting for her clients and producing consistent, outstanding results.

As a minority woman Jessica believes giving back to the community that raised her is one of the most distinct privileges she has been afforded. She has had a continuous presence in donating her time to legal clinics, food drives, pro bono work and mentoring. She currently presides as the President of the Mexican American Bar Association and sits on the Board of Directors for her alma mater, Bishop Dunne Catholic School. She has also been appointed to two Dallas City Council boards and continues to pursue endeavors that support the city and the community that she loves. She was awarded the Estrella de Oro Award by her peers for 2020 by MABA.
