Legal Secretary

After graduating Westchester High School in Los Angeles, California, Gloria held several odd jobs before becoming a calendaring clerk. While being able to communicate daily with courtroom clerks and staff at many different law firms, she never felt at home in that role. She loves organizing and learning new things, as well as providing the best customer service she can offer. As a client liaison at King Law Firm Attorneys at Law, Inc., Gloria learns as much as she can about the law from her colleagues in an environment that truly feels like her home away from home.

A San Pedro, California native, Gloria now lives in Canyon Lake with her husband of 12 years.
