I am a very fortunate person in that I absolutely love what I do! I play a role in making peoples' dreams come true by helping them immigrate to the United States. I also keep families together by defending people who are facing deportation. Lastly, I defend people who have been charged with crimes ranging from petty theft and drug crimes, to murder.
I passionately fight for my clients rights everyday. It is truly an honor and pleasure to serve my clients. I went to law school to be able to help people--common, everyday people--and I am blessed to say that I have a positive impact on peoples' lives.
One thing my clients notice from the beginning is that I truly care about each of of my clients, their cases, and their lives. Also, I am very honest in my case evaluations. My clients value my straight forward approach instead of empty promises and sugar coating. Lastly, I have a stellar reputation in the legal community. I was a National Champion Trial Advocate while at the University of San Diego School of Law, and now I use those award-winning courtroom skills in order to get the best possible results for my clients.
I offer competitive fees, and flexible no-interest payment plans. I accept all major credit cards, cash, or checks.
Thank you for reading, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
