Esteban Sandoval is a first-generation Mexican American who grew up in El Paso, Texas. Esteban’s parents were both born in Mexico, but ultimately wanted a better life for their three children and moved from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico to El Paso, Texas when Esteban was three years old. Although, Spanish was the language of the household, Esteban learned English by attending public school in Texas. In high school, his uncanny leadership abilities were not only evident in his academic performance, but also on the football and track field where he earned the title of team captain and was named to the all-district team. After graduating high school, Esteban attended the University of Texas at Austin where he earned his bachelor’s degree in government with a minor in Spanish and met his wife, Kendra Sandoval.

After graduating, Esteban moved to Las Vegas, where he and Kendra bought a house and made Las Vegas their home. Shortly thereafter, Esteban decided to attend law school. While he was still completing his undergraduate degree, Esteban worked for an injury attorney. It was there that Esteban saw how injuries caused by someone else’s negligence could devastate people’s lives and the difference a dedicated attorney could make in the outcome of their case. This left Esteban with a great respect for injury attorneys and ultimately inspired him to move forward with law school. Having found a passion for the city of Las Vegas and its community, Esteban decided to stay in Las Vegas while he did so, attending the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Since graduating law school, Esteban has dedicated himself to representing clients injured by another’s negligence. He has helped thousands of injured clients accumulate millions in recovery and is a founding partner in law firms in two separate jurisdictions. Before founding SJW Injury Attorneys, Esteban along with his good friend and colleague, Benedict James, formed Sandoval & James in Austin, Texas. Sandoval & James quickly grew to be one of the preeminent injury firms in Austin.

Despite his success, Esteban maintains a strong passion for representing injured victims. He takes pride in leading by example and stays directly involved in all cases, working with and training his staff each and every day to ensure all of his clients receive the best possible result on their case. He currently shares his time between Austin and Las Vegas and is a strong advocate for people in both communities.

When he is not working, Esteban puts the same passion and energy into being a father and husband as he does into representing his clients. He values family overall and his commitment to treating every SJW client as a member of his own family.
