Adriana Valadez

Legal Receptionist

Growing up in Whittier, Ca. with her parents and siblings, Adriana went on to graduate from Whittier College with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Chemistry. With her science background, substantial focus skills and personable attitude, she is a strong addition to our law firm’s team.  While her first love—the sciences—is steadily taking her into the field of medicine, we are happy to have her as part of the “Law Offices of George B. Pacheco & Associates” family for now.

Adriana enjoys her time in between her night courses by traveling and exploring as many new places as possible. Additionally, she also shares her free time by volunteering at local healthcare facilities. Her joy to assist and help others is why she chose to become part of our office.

“I happily accepted the opportunity to join such a prestigious group of law professionals. It will only help me grow professionally and allow me to practice what I love to do—meeting and helping new people!”.
