He served as Attorney General, Judge of the Ecuadorian Constitutional Tribunal, Congressman, Ministry of Education, where he implemented the successful program “One school per day” and President of the local Bar Association.

During his forty years of practice, Dr. Fabián Jaramillo Dávila consolidated an office based on excellency in counseling and litigation on labor and employment matters, which is currently lead by his sons, Dr. Fabián Jaramillo Terán and Dr. Diego Jaramillo Terán.
