By the time Anthony Crisostomo graduated with a law degree, he knew he was ready for the challenges that lay ahead.

“McGeorge’s practical approach allowed me to jump right into my chosen career as an assistant public defender,” said the Sacramento native, who earned his JD in 2016. “By developing my advocacy skills early in my law school career, I was confident in representing the most vulnerable members of the community.” 

Today, Crisostomo represents indigent clients charged with crimes within Sacramento County.

Looking back at his time at McGeorge, Crisostomo said the school’s supportive community was one of the most important aspects of his education. Honoring this tradition, he also regularly speaks to new and prospective students to make them aware of the strong collegial network they will develop.

“McGeorge alumni have a stellar reputation for being excellent attorneys who are prepared and versatile,” he said.
