Gonzalo Serrano served as an Assistant District Attorney in Dallas and the Equal Justice Center for four and a half years prior to joining Rosenthal Kalabus & Therrian. He is fluent in Spanish and has been privileged to have represented many Spanish-speaking clients.

After graduating from high school in McKinney, Gonzalo attended McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, earning a Political Science degree. His intention was to go straight from college to law school, but life had other plans. He was offered an incredible opportunity to serve as a Legislative Intern during the 2007 legislative session at the Texas State Capitol. He was offered the position of Legislative Aide and Assistant Clerk for the Texas Senate Higher Education Committee for the 2009 Legislative Session and remained in that roll through the 2011 session. He attended the University of Texas, School of Law and graduated in May 2014 and became a licensed attorney in November 2014.

His first role as an attorney was as an Equal Justice Works Fellow, serving the DFW Metroplex via the Equal Justice Center (EJC), a non-profit law firm that provides employment related legal representation to low-income individuals. After a few years at the EJC, he joined the Dallas County Assistant District Attorney’s Office and held that position until March 2019. After leaving the District Attorney’s Office he opened The Law Office of Gonzalo Serrano, P.C.

Gonzalo enjoys working with Spanish-speaking clients who have entrusted him with their cases. He finds great satisfaction in helping clients who would prefer to communicate with their lawyer in their native Spanish language. Not only is he able to understand the language, but he also understands the culture of the Spanish speaking community, which he finds is a valuable tool in his practice.
