El Cajon Domestic Violence Lawyer

El Cajon is a city that is east of San Diego. The locals call it “east county” as it is the main city in the eastern part of the county of San Diego. El Cajon has a reputation for being a little bit warmer in the summer and having larger properties sometimes with farm like structures as it goes a little bit more east. With a population of just over 100,000 people, El Cajon comes in as the sixth largest city in San Diego. Ironically big businesses are not the biggest employers in El Cajon and instead it is actually the school district. The Cajon Valley Union School district actually employs almost 1500 employees and is currently the largest employer in El Cajon. There are 21 elementary schools in the city, 6 middle schools and 7 high schools. El Cajon is surrounded by mountains which was partly one of the reasons why it got the name “the Big Box”.
