A veteran attorney, Aldon Bolanos earned a bachelor of arts in philosophy, ethics, and public policy at the University of California before going on to complete his juris doctor at the university’s Hastings College of Law. His dedication to assisting victims of banks and large corporations began early in his career when he worked as a clerk during law school at the California Department of Insurance. Under the direction of the lawyer Larry White and Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi, attorney Aldon Bolanos served on the Workers’ Compensation Task Force and helped effect reforms to the California Labor Code.

Throughout the last decade, Mr. Bolanos has proven himself an advocate for ordinary people, representing clients against Fortune 500 companies, city police forces, and national banks. In 2013, he was one of the first lawyers to test California’s new Homeowner Bill of Rights, which prevents lenders from dual-tracking homeowners under threat of foreclosure. In this case, Mr. Bolanos was able to obtain a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction on the bank, put his client’s foreclosure on indefinite hold, and ultimately compel the bank to treat this and other homeowners more fairly. It was the first time in California history an injunction was taken against a bank under the new law. Read Less

.In re Marriage Cases
June 2007 to December 2007
Team Members: Aldon Bolanos

This is the seminal California Supreme Court decision finding for the first time that there is a civil right to same-sex marriage. I prepared all legal research and briefings for the lead plaintiffs in this case, a group of nine San Francisco same-sex couples. My general strategy was to link the right to interracial marriage as a similar right to gay marriage. It worked!
