ABOUT THE CEO
The Story Behind
Josef-Jake Camacho Aguilar, a barrister and solicitor for Ontario and British Columbia, is the founder and CEO of JCA Law Office Professional Corporation. He previously practiced corporate law at the Government Service Insurance System in the Philippines. After settling in Toronto’s Thorncliffe Park Neighbourhood, which has a significant Filipino-Canadian community, Jake recognized the lack of legal services available to Filipinos in Canada. He opened his office near the Philippine Consulate General-Toronto, offering various legal services, including immigration, family law, real estate, wills & powers of attorney, corporate law, civil, criminal law, and other services such as NBI clearance, PSA certificates, and notary with authentication. Jake’s office provides a welcoming environment and a positive legal experience for all Canadians.
A Welcoming And Positive Atmosphere
JCA Law, situated in midtown Toronto (Yonge & Eglinton), recognizes that many clients may not have frequent interactions with the law, making legal rules, procedures, documents, and strategies daunting. The team at JCA Law is dedicated to easing clients’ concerns by providing sound legal advice and a welcoming and positive experience, managing a wide range of legal cases every day.
Our goal is to help you break down each step of the legal process such as:
- How the law applies to your legal matter
- The options you have to achieve your goal
- Expectations especially in terms of time, cost, and chances of achieving the desired outcome
After retaining our office, we will provide you with a clear and straightforward explanation of the process ahead. We prioritize ensuring that you understand the process and will support you in making informed decisions at every step of the way.
An In-Depth Understanding Of Your Goals
At JCA Law, we recognize that the most effective legal strategy is one that aligns with your intended goals. Some clients may have a clear idea of how they want their case to proceed and what outcomes they hope to achieve. As legal professionals, our team strives to ensure that your goals are accomplished within the parameters of time, budget, and other constraints. We prioritize a collaborative approach that prioritizes the most feasible outcome rather than the notion of “winning” or “losing.”
Our approach involves actively listening to you and asking targeted questions to gain a comprehensive understanding of your needs. Once we have identified the outcome that will meet your objectives, we develop a customized legal strategy tailored to your unique circumstances.
The applicable rate or fixed fee to handle your matter will be discussed after your consultation.

JCA Law Office Professional Corporation is a contemporary law firm staffed by knowledgeable lawyers and welcoming personnel who are passionate about helping clients with their legal and immigration issues. Located in Midtown Toronto (Yonge & Eglinton), this boutique law firm was founded by Josef-Jake Camacho Aguilar to serve the growing demand for legal services within the Filipino-Canadian migrant communities. Jake, a Certified Public Accountant, began his legal career in the Philippines in 2006 as part of the Government Service Insurance System Law Office, a government-owned and controlled corporation. In 2012, he immigrated to Canada with his family.
Driven by a strong desire to provide legal services to the growing Filipino-Canadian communities, particularly in Toronto, Ontario, Jake established JCA Law Office Professional Corporation in 2016, initially focusing on immigration and family law. To meet the needs of its clients, JCA Law added real estate closings, wills & powers of attorney, corporate law, criminal law, civil law, and other services, including international police clearances such as NBI clearance, PSA certificates, and document authentication services. The practice aims to assist Filipinos in Canada and welcomes Canadian residents of Toronto and beyond. In 2020, Jake became a member of the Law Society of British Columbia and founded JCA Law Corporation, authorized to provide legal services in the Canadian Province of British Columbia. Celebrating its eighth year in practice, JCA Law is committed to continually improving its skills and expanding its knowledge to better serve the Canadian immigrant communities.
