San Jose, California

San Jose Family Law Attorney

San Jose, California, is located near the Pacific Ocean, south of the San Francisco Bay. Founded in 1777, San Jose was the first civil settlement in the new Spanish colony. The small farming community provided food for military forces stationed in California. When California became a state in 1849, San Jose was named its first capital. Prospectors flooded the area looking for gold, but eventually settled in the fertile valley, exporting fruit from the first canneries in the United States. San Jose would strike gold later as booming high-technology and electronics industries made the “Capitol of Silicon Valley” the richest urban center in California. Known as the tech center of the world, Silicon Valley continues to draw the brightest minds from around the globe. Home of Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Cisco, and other industry giants, San Jose has maintained its heritage of cultural diversity and the rich tapestry of foreigners that have transformed the small farming community that first packaged prunes to the world’s largest producer of U.S. patents.
