Where were you educated and what qualifications did you earn?
I was admitted to the California State Bar in early 2004 after attending the UCLA School of Law, where I obtained my Juris Doctor degree. Before that, I received by undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Literature from UC Santa Cruz in 1999.
Prior to joining Vokshori Law Group, what previous, relevant, positions did you hold?
I have worked in bankruptcy and civil litigation throughout my fourteen years of legal practice. From 2009 through 2013, I ran my own law firm, the Law Offices of Luke Jackson, and handled hundreds of bankruptcy matters to successful resolution as well as civil litigation cases.
What causes do you support? Do you do any charity or community work?
I have worked on pro bono legal matters for low-income clients previously during my years of practice. My work now at Vokshori Law Group helps people to stay in their homes when they are having financial trouble.
What’s the best thing about working at Vokshori Law Group?
The best part is working together as a team to help our clients stay in their homes. There is a great team spirit at VLG and we do noble work for people in financial straits.
What prompted you to join Vokshori Law Group?
I enjoy how everyone here genuinely gets along with one another without any competitiveness or back-biting. There is a great amount of camaraderie.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy reading, traveling and exercise.
If you had total financial freedom and didn’t have to work, what would you do and why?
If I had total financial freedom, I would travel the world, not as a short vacation but as an extended trip with the opportunity to explore and see absolutely everything I can about the world.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? (This can be a professional or personal achievement)
My son Dylan, who is now in high school and becoming a fine young man in my unbiased opinion.
What’s your favorite movie of all time?
The Big Lebowski
What book are you reading at the moment?
I am reading/listening to the audiobook versions of Blink by Malcolm Gladwell to learn more about human intuition, and Iron Gold by Pierce Brown just for fun.
What’s your ‘Claim to Fame’?
When I was in the fifth grade, I was the star of my school play. I played “Greta Garbage,” a trashy version of Greta Garbo, in front of all of my peers and their parents.
What’s your favorite quote?
“While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” – Eugene V. Debs
