The Firm

Fontes Law Group, PC, formerly the Law Offices of Martin C. Fontes and Fontes Figueroa Law Group, APC, was originally founded by Martin C. Fontes in 2006. We currently operate two offices in Orange County and Riverside County, California. The firm was founded on the principle that every client deserves the highest-quality representation. The firm prides itself in hiring talented lawyers with a passion for serving the community.


Fontes Law Group, PC provides honest and exceptional legal services to individuals in a timely manner. All of our attorneys speak Spanish, which allows for direct communication with our Spanish-speaking clients.
Our law firm of three attorneys is small enough to provide personalized service to every client yet large enough to serve the diverse needs of our clients. We recognize the need for honest, competent, and ethical attorneys in the legal field and strive to exceed our clients’ expectations.

We believe a focused approach to practicing only in specific legal fields allows our clients receive peace of mind that through experience, they will receive knowledgeable and effective representation in their legal issues.

The firm is focused on representing its clients in three general areas:

Immigration Law
Criminal Law
Family Law
