Michael S. Carrillo grew up in South Pasadena, CA and went to high school at South Pasadena High School. After high school, he went to California State University Long Beach. After a year there, he transferred to Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. While at Purdue, he became a student leader on campus eventually becoming the president of the Latino Student Union, one of the founding fathers of Delta Pi Rho Fraternity, Inc., Social Activities Director for the Mortar Board Honor Society, and a volunteer mentor for College Mentors For Kids!

After graduating from Purdue, Michael attended Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, CA. While there, he also began working for Wallin & Klarich, one of the most prestigious and well-known criminal defense and family law firms in Orange County and all over Southern California. There, under the tutelage of senior partner Paul Wallin, he became well entrenched in the business side of the law and became familiar with the practices of a big firm.

After spending some time with Wallin & Klarich, Michael joined his father and his firm, The Law Offices of Luis A. Carrillo. There he became well versed in civil and criminal law learning the intricacies of properly representing clients.

Thereafter, Michael passed the bar and immediately began practicing law. Ever since then, he has represented clients in cases all over Southern California from cases as far as Barstow, El Centro, and Vista, to local courthouses in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange Counties.
