Paul Nathan Puri comes from a long line of doctors and lawyers. His grand-uncle was a famous criminal defense attorney in Punjab, India and was famously known to have acquitted the same man of murder ten times. Nathan Puri graduated from University of California at Davis and New College School of Law. He has been working in corporate, criminal and public interest law since 1996. In 1998 he was a founding member of a optical microprocessor design firm. He opened Puri Law in 2003 after working for the San Francisco Public Defender’s office since 2001. He quickly became one of the Bay Area’s most prominent criminal defense practitioners, frequently winning cases in each of the nine counties. He has always been willing to go where the fight is and has never shied away from taking on injustice. Mr. Puri pioneered the business model of the modern law firm, by leveraging technology to gain an international presence with zero environmental waste. Mr. Puri has a reputation for taking on cases that other lawyers are afraid to take, and has won what many thought were impossible victories. Many of these cases involved international investigations. To prepare himself for the grueling stress that comes with his career, he studied with the top teachers of Tibetan Buddhism including the supreme master of the Nyingma school, His Holiness Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, who has given Mr. Puri the right to teach, meaning Mr. Puri has achieved the highest levels of mind training.
