Luis Cisneros Jr. Esq. LLB LLM

Luis is from the Philippines and obtained his first degree in law from the University of Eastern Philippines. In 2015, he moved to Michigan to be with his wife, Lauren, whom he met while she was serving in the Peace Corps in the Philippines. They went westward for Luis to study his Master of Laws degree at the University of Washington and quickly fell in love with camping and hiking in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to English, Luis also speaks Filipino, Bisaya, and his native Waray-Waray. He hopes to someday be fluent in Spanish and French. In his free time, he loves to walk his dogs, Magnus and Moon, and take spontaneous road trips with his family.
