Attorney, Fransen & Molinaro, LLP (2006–current)


Chapman University School of Law, Orange, CA Juris Doctor, Law (2005)

Paul J. Molinaro, M.D., J.D. and his wife Jeanne M. Molinaro were married in the backyard of their Chino Hills home in 1996 and have lived there ever since. Jeanne chose Chino Hills as she had grown up on a dairy in Ontario and did not want to leave the area. Paul could not be happier with her and her choice of places to live and raise their family. Paul and Jeanne have two adult-aged children, Jacob and Morgan. Both attended public schools and played sports for their schools. Jacob graduated from University of California, Riverside with a degree in Sociology. Morgan is currently a sophomore at Whittier College where she is majoring in Biology. Jeanne has been a radiology technologist and mammographer for Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center for thirty-five years. Many of the residents of Chino Hills have probably met Jeanne at one of Pomona Valley Hospital’s local clinics.


Paul moved to California in 1992 after finishing medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – New Jersey Medical School. He did his post medical school training at San Bernardino County Medical Center (now Arrowhead Regional Medical Center). He was a staff member if Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center for fifteen years as an urgent care physician. Paul graduated from Chapman University School of Law in 2005, and along with Nathan Fransen, opened the Law Office of Fransen & Molinaro, LLP ( immediately upon passing the bar exam. Paul’s law practice focuses on cases involving real estate, medical malpractice, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, and personal injury. Paul practices law full-time and practices medicine about two days a month.


Though busy with family and work, Paul has made himself available to volunteer his services and time to Ed Acts Global ( which is a nonprofit organization started by his good friend Fred Ramirez. Aside from helping with local events and serving on the Advisory Committee for Ed Acts Global, Paul recently helped Fred take a group of local students (ranging in age from junior high school to college) to Honduras where they built a playground for an elementary school.


Not one to ever shy away from the challenges of helping others through his work and volunteer efforts, Paul would like to serve as a member of the City Counsel for the City of Chino Hills where he would use his ambition, education, and experience to make Chino Hills an even better place to live than it already is. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Simply stated, I am a Libertarian, and that means a small, well-run, local government should have more control opver our local issues and lives than a government miles and miles away. County, State, and Federal governments have roles, but they have overstepped their bounds. The residents of Chino Hills and the officials they elect to be their councilpersons should have control over what occurs in Chino Hills.
