Prior to law school, Francisco worked as a Forensic Analyst for a Computer Forensics firm in downtown Manhattan.

There, he was ranked in the top 10% of attorneys office-wide, and his work in the Gang Division led him to orchestrate the largest takedown of one gang in Kings County history.

Thereafter, Francisco served as a Senior Associate Attorney at two mid-sized firms in Manhattan.
