Luis Trujillo is a graduate of Stony Brook University where he majored in Political Science. He then received his Juris Doctorate from the New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts. During law school, Mr. Trujillo was placed on the Dean’s List, wrote scholarly articles for the Law Review, and authored a thesis about the Enron litigation. While in law school, Mr. Trujillo studied Business Administration at Harvard University as well as Japanese at Showa Boston. Finally, as a law student, Mr. Trujillo volunteered for Cambridge’s Indigent Client Program where he represented homeless individuals in both the civil and criminal courts.
Mr. Trujillo was drawn to the law at an early age by witnessing the injustice his family endured due to racism. In order to help his family and friends, Mr. Trujillo translated documents from Spanish to English and vice-versa, attended forums regarding employment discrimination, and sued delinquent clients on behalf of his father.
During the Summer of 2002, Mr. Trujillo interned at the Aqua Yodabayashi Law Firm in Osaka, Japan. There, he was mentored by Toru Matsumoto who taught him that the law is like water: it must always move forward, adapt flexibly to change, and pursue innovation with a transparent and impartial mind.
Prior to joining the law firm of Kim & Bae, Mr. Trujillo was a solo practitioner providing legal services throughout New York and New Jersey. Mr. Trujillo is unalloyed and tempered in the areas of criminal law, civil law, landlord-tenant, immigration, real estate, foreclosures, bankruptcy, debt settlement, wills and probate, and family law matters. Following the aftermath of the housing market crash of 2009, Mr. Trujillo saved over 800 homes and proudly prevented more than 1,000 families from becoming homeless.
Mr. Trujillo is admitted to practice law in both New York and New Jersey. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association, the Nassau County Bar Association and the New York County Bar Association. He is also admitted to practice in the Southern District of New York, the Eastern District of New York, the Court of International Trade, and the United States Court of Appeals for both the Second and Third Circuits. He also maintains pro hac vice status in both Texas and Delaware and he is in the process of waiving into other states as well.
Finally, Mr. Trujillo is fluent in Spanish. He applies his keen interest in, and knowledge of, criminal forensics to his daily litigation strategies.
