About Me

I've been practicing family law since 2006 along with Criminal, Bankruptcy and some Immigration.  It's been my pleasure to help so many people during some of the hardest times of their lives. 


I speak fluent Spanish and so does everyone in my office.  We are proud to help the Spanish-speaking community.
