Jeanine Tizon is a paralegal assisting multiple attorneys at the Law Offices of Nigel Burns. She obtained her Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies and History at Pasadena City College, an ABA-accredited program. She is currently attending Cal State University of Long Beach to further her studies in history.
As a Chicana, she believes in the importance of representation and giving back to her community. Prior to working at the Law Offices of Nigel Burns, Ms. Tizon volunteered at the Jackie Robinson Center in Pasadena, CA, a nonprofit institution dedicated to providing free or low-cost legal support services in civil litigation matters for underprivileged individuals who cannot afford an attorney. This included providing translation services for Spanish-speaking clients, providing legal support for the elderly in elder abuse cases, and helping clients prepare restraining order documents for domestic violence cases. She also assisted clients in preparing answers to unlawful detainers, for tenants who were being unlawfully evicted.
In her spare time, she collects clothing donations to give to the local community and to adoption centers across borders. Her time is dedicated to rescuing stray animals that have been abandoned and finding loving homes for them. She is an avid reader, loves taking road trips to the desert, and gardening as a way to connect with her ancestral traditions.
