About Me

My law practice can be fairly characterized as "Community Law."  The client who first came to me regarding a traffic ticket, I may also represent in a real estate transaction, by incorporating their business, defending them in a civil lawsuit, preparing their Will, or guiding them through bankruptcy.

I take every client's need very seriously and I handle each matter with the greatest skill and professionalism.


Languages Spoken: Spanish, Portuguese
