With a desire to make a positive lasting impact in San Bernardino County, Deputy District Attorney Juan Garcia Moreno is excited to humbly serve the community that gave him and his family meaningful opportunities.

Born in Colombia, Juan and his family immigrated to the United States in 1998 where he grew up in San Bernardino County. 

Juan knew from a young age he always wanted to be a deputy district attorney to help improve the lives of minorities. 

Deputy District Attorney Juan Garcia Moreno was sworn in on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 by District Attorney Jason Anderson.

With a desire to make a powerful change, Juan went to California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) for undergrad. At CSUSB, he received a BA in Political Science and another BA in Geography. After finishing his undergrad career, Juan attended Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. While in law school, he worked for the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, the National Hispanic Caucus for State Legislators, and Armstrong Donohue Ceppos Vaughan & Rhoades. Additionally, Juan was a judicial extern for the Honorable Carlos F. Acosta in the District Court for Montgomery County. 

“I went into law because I saw the law as the best tool to help improve the lives of minorities. When I was going through my naturalization process, my family had a really good immigration attorney that showed me how I could use the law to help people. I promised myself from a young age that I would become a lawyer to do good for others.”

Although Juan enjoyed private practice and the unique challenges that private practice brings, his calling was always prosecutorial work. As a result, when Juan graduated from law school, he decided to return to San Bernardino County with a desire to work for and to protect his community.

“My family and I owe our happiness and our livelihood to this county. I am all I am today thanks to the opportunities this county provided to me.”
