J.M. Florentino


J.M. Florentino came to Boutin Jones after serving as a corporate law summer associate with the firm and subsequently a judicial extern for the Honorable Troy L. Nunley of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. He chose to practice law at Boutin Jones because of the strength of the firm’s corporate department. He developed a keen interest in business law in an unlikely place – serving in the Peace Corps in Ghana, West Africa. He served as an agriculture business advisor and helped local businesses thrive and lift the community.

At Boutin Jones, he works with businesses of all sizes and in different industries. He assists with the entire range of business transactions, including entity formations, asset purchases, mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, and general corporate matters.

“I was drawn to corporate law because I like helping business leaders achieve their goals. I enjoy advising companies on all sorts of matters and collaborating with others to make deals happen.”

I’m a lifelong Sacramentan, but really came to appreciate the region after spending two years in Ghana. I saw all the ways the area had changed and enjoyed rediscovering Sacramento. I’m hoping to see some of the positive changes extend to the Sacramento Kings soon.
