Guillermo Tijerina, Jr.

Guillermo “Memo” Tijerina is originally from San Antonio, Texas.  Memo primarily practices in personal injury defense, though his practice extends to defense of commercial motor vehicle accidents, premises liability and first-party insurance claims.  Memo places a heavy emphasis on resolving cases in the courtroom, which has resulted in him trying several cases a year to valley juries.

Memo earned two degrees from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. While in law school, Memo excelled in, among other courses, trial advocacy and the law of medical malpractice. During his time in school, Notre Dame's trial advocacy program was ranked in the top five nationally by U.S. News & World Report.

Memo is active in his local church, Our Lady of Sorrows, and is a proud member of the Knights of Columbus.
