About Me

I have bachlers degrees in business and Spanish.  I've lived in Argentinaand in Mexico.  I graduated from law school in 1996 and began working for the Law Offices of Bernardo Eureste, where I did workerscompensation litigation.


In March of 1998, I spun off and created my own firm handling primarily workers compensation claims.  In 2006 we diversified into handling all types of accident cases, criminal defense, family law and immigration.


I have a network of attorneys that I work closely with that allow us to handle ost types of cases.  I am fluent in Spanish as is the majority of my staff.  If you have a legalquestion or need assistance give us a call at (214)357-1782.
