Ms. Nuñez Esparza is a partner with the prestigious firm of Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora. She has tried cases throughout Northern California involving mild traumatic brain injury, catastrophic injury, and wrongful death with Roger Dreyer, founding partner of the firm. Ms. Nuñez Esparza has also tried and handled a variety of cases from dog bite injuries and car collisions to child sexual abuse and premise liability cases. She has experience handling cases in venues throughout Northern and Southern California. She has been selected as a Rising Star by the Northern California Super Lawyers from 2016-2019. This recognition is bestowed on less than 2.5 percent of all attorneys. She has also been recognized by San Francisco Magazine as one of Northern California's Outstanding Young Lawyers and selected by Top Attorneys - Sacramento's Outstanding Young Lawyers.

In every case, Ms. Nuñez Esparza brings forth her experience working as an attorney for more than a decade for one of the preeminent firms in California and her experience as an immigrant and mother. Fighting for justice was nothing new to Ms. Nuñez Esparza when she embarked on her legal career. As a woman of color and an immigrant, she has had to overcome many hurdles to achieve where she is today. She discovered early on a passion for justice. Her experiences resulted in her decision to become a trial lawyer representing injured victims.  She brings her determination and passion for justice to every case. 

Aside from working hard for her clients, Ms. Nuñez Esparza is also active with the Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) in its effort to effect positive change in the law as it relates to consumer rights and the rights of injured victims to obtain justice. She has been an invited lecturer for CAOC and has testified in legislative committees on behalf of injured victims. In 2016, Ms. Nuñez Esparza assisted in efforts to pass Assembly Bill 2159 that corrected an injustice for immigrants who were being denied the full extent of their damages when they were injured by someone else's negligence. She testified in legislative committees and lobbied legislators urging passage of the bill.

Ms. Nuñez Esparza is originally from Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico where most of her family currently resides. Prior to becoming an attorney, Ms. Nuñez Esparza worked as a political fundraiser for Sandino Consulting from 2000 to 2002. From 2002-2005, Ms. Nuñez Esparza worked in the California Legislature, initially as a Legislative Aide, and was later promoted to Legislative Director to Assembly member Simon Salinas. In 2005, Ms. Nuñez Esparza worked for the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, a nonprofit, statewide domestic violence coalition in Sacramento, as the Public Policy Program Manager. Between 2000 and 2005, Ms. Esparza also served as a volunteer for the Sacramento Court Appointed Special Advocates Program, where she advocated in court for the best interests of children in the foster care system.                       

When Ms. Nuñez Esparza is not working and advocating for the rights of others, she is spending time with her two young children.


La Sra. Esparza nació en Guadalajara, México. Ella emigró a los Estados Unidos a los seis años de edad y creció en el Área de la Bahía. Se graduó y obtuvo su BA en Comunicación e Inglés de la Universidad de California, Davis en 1999. Se fue a vivir a Sacramento para trabajar como recaudadora de fondos política para Sandino Consulting del 2000 al 2002. Después trabajó en la Legislatura Estatal de California del 2002 al 2005, inicialmente como asistente legislativa del Asambleísta Simón Salinas, y más tarde fue ascendida al puesto de Directora Legislativa. Después que el Asambleísta Salinas dejó la Legislatura Estatal, La Sra. Esparza fue a trabajar del 2005 al 2006 a La Asociación de California para Dar Fin a la Violencia Intrafamiliar como Directora de la política pública del programa, una coalición en Sacramento contra la violencia Intrafamiliar sin fines lucrativos a nivel estatal. Durante este periodo de tiempo del 2000 al 2005, la Sra. Esparza trabajó como voluntaria para el Programa de Defensores Especiales Asignados de los Tribunales de Sacramento, donde ella abogó en los juzgados para beneficio de los niños que se encuentran en el Sistema de Casa de Crianza. Persiguiendo su sueño de convertirse en Abogada para abogar por los derechos de otros, se inscribió en la Escuela de Derecho Lincoln en el 2005. Para practicar y conseguir experiencia legal, la Sra. Esparza empezó a trabajar en el Bufete de Abogados Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora en el 2006 como asistente legal mientras asistía a la escuela de Derecho. Cuando estaba en la escuela la Sra. Esparza y su compañera de clase Natasha Cooper como abogada adjunto, ganaron como Mejor Equipo el Premio de Mejor Juicio de Apoyo Jurídico.

Pocos meses después de su graduación de la Escuela de Derecho, La Sra. Esparza, todavía siendo Asistente Legal Certificada, llevó a juicio su primer caso con Roger Dreyer. El caso fue López v. DAV Charities que se trató de un choque en Fresno que resulto en lesiones catastróficas al cerebro de la conductora inocente. El caso resultó en un veredicto de ocho cifras para el cliente. Poco después, La Sra. Esparza fue admitida al Colegio de Abogados del Estado de California en el 2009 y continuó trabajando como abogada en el Bufete. En el 2012 la Sra. Esparza una vez más como abogada adjunto con Roger Dreyer llevó el caso Arenas v. UPS, un caso de homicidio negligente en Sacramento, el cual dio como resultado un veredicto de siete cifras para sus clientes.

La Sra. Esparza además participa activamente en la organización de Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC) en su esfuerzo de efectuar cambios positivos en la ley con relación a los derechos del consumidor y los derechos de personas lesionadas para que reciban justicia. Aparte de participar en los esfuerzos legislativos de CAOC, recientemente ella se graduó de su Programa de Liderazgo en colaboración con la Asociación de Nuevos Líderes. El programa de Liderazgo entrena abogados prometedores de Bufetes de Abogados de todo el estado para que se conviertan en líderes de sus bufetes, de CAOC y de sus comunidades.

La Sra. Esparza habla español con fluidez, y cuando no está trabajando o abogando por los derechos de otros, ella pasa su tiempo con sus dos hijos de siete y nueve años de edad
