Jordan Esteban is an associate at Heise Suarez Melville. He is a distinguished trial lawyer with a proven track record in trial advocacy and civil litigation. Jordan brings a wealth of practical experience in deposition, mediation, and the courtroom, and possesses a unique background in federal tax controversy.

After graduating from law school, Jordan started his career at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. as a Trial Attorney. During his tenure, he earned recognition for his outstanding contributions, including the Attorney General’s 2022 Special Commendation and 2023 Outstanding Attorney Award. In his role at DOJ, Jordan managed a diverse docket of civil tax cases where he developed his trial skills early in a complex area of law. As a trial attorney at DOJ, Jordan managed his own federal affirmative and defensive caseload from day one which allowed him to handle every stage of litigation from beginning to end. He tried two federal cases to victory, prevailed on others on motions to dismiss or summary judgment, and otherwise obtained favorable settlements for the government, thereby securing millions of dollars in tax revenue for the Treasury throughout his three-year tenure at DOJ.

Jordan earned his Juris Doctor in 2020 from Florida International University College of Law, where he graduated magna cum laude and ranked in the top 5% of his class. He was an Articles Editor of the FIU Law Review and served on the journal’s Business Committee. He was also a member of the Board of Appellate Advocates where he was a Quarterfinalist and Runner-up Best Oralist in FIU’s Intramural Competition and a Regional Champion in the 2020 ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition.

Before embarking on his legal career, Jordan earned a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Case Western Reserve University where he excelled both academically and athletically, demonstrating leadership qualities as a captain of his football team.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Jordan remains deeply committed to community service initiatives. He was a volunteer football coach at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C.; co-founded OneGen, Inc. to promote youth professional development; mentors students at his alma mater, Belen Jesuit; and shares life and career insights as a speaker at the HNBF Future Latino Leaders Summer Law Institute.
