Attorney Ernest Calderón, a native of Morenci, Arizona, has more than 35 years of experience practicing law in Arizona. From 1990-2004 he was a partner with one of Arizona’s largest and most prestigious law firms.

Dr. Calderón is skilled at providing advice and dispute resolution techniques that can help keep a client out of costly litigation.

Ernie is incredibly responsive 24/7. I know when I call him he will either answer or return my call immediately. His 35 years of experience helps us navigate issues and provides us with innovative solutions to our needs. I use Ernie as a “go to” guy because I can rely on him and he is looks out for the welfare of my company. We are pleased to partner with Calderón Law Offices.

Philip Tavasci, president, Educational Services Inc. (“ESI”)

Ernie Calderon provided excellent legal counsel during my 13 year tenure as superintendent in two Arizona school districts. Whenever there was a tough legal issue that our other attorneys couldn’t resolve, I hired Ernie. He is both a problem solver and a “can-do” lawyer. Ernie provided timely, cost-effective and innovative solutions and helped us maximize our service to our students, faculty, staff and community. I would hire Ernie for any assignment, but particularly the most challenging ones.

Dr. Kent P. Scribner, former Superintendent, Phoenix, AZ.
