About Me

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina I think it is important for attorneys to maintain cultural and religious sensitivies with clients who are sometimes from a vast array of different backgronds.


Likewise, clients do not have the educational background as their attorney.  I have had clients come to me because their lawyer is not keep them informed about their case, or does not take the time to fully explain the status and the potential outcomes/consequences of their cases. My top priority is to ensure that clients completely understand possibly the most important aspect of their lives.
