Dennis Faigal joined the Pacific Justice Institute in 2018 to take over as head of the San Jose, California office. Faigal graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law in 2007 and began his career in litigation with Fenwick & West in the Silicon Valley. Thereafter, Faigal gained extensive litigation experience with other large global law firms from a broad array of practice areas and industries; including, intellectual property, products liability, financial services litigation, commercial transactions, and real estate law, among many others. Faigal uses this experience to zealously represent PJI’s clients who face an equally diverse array of challenging legal issues.
Faigal joined PJI after attending a presentation by PJI’s president, Brad Dacus, at Faigal’s parish in San Jose. Faigal was so moved by PJI’s work that he approached Dacus immediately after the presentation to sign up as an affiliate attorney. Then upon learning of the opening at PJI’s San Jose office several months later, he jumped at the chance to join them as a staff attorney. Faigal says, “It was no coincidence that I attended Brad’s presentation at my Church. There is no doubt in my mind that God called me to be there and compelled me to join this wonderful organization. Indeed, this is nothing short of a calling to do God’s work. The work I do with PJI representing Churches and families facing religious persecution is easily the most important work I have done in my whole career.”
