I completed my undergraduate education at California State University, Sacramento in 1996. I completed my post-graduate work at the University of Denver College of Law in 2001 and was licensed to practice law in the State of California in December 2001.
I am in my 14th year of practice as an attorney, I have developed knowledge in diverse areas of civil litigation including real estate law, community association (HOA) law, employment law, personal injury, business/contract/commercial disputes, construction and insurance law. My business is primarily centered around Debt Collection, including HOA assessment collection cases, non judicial foreclosures, and Creditor's rights in bankruptcy court.
I am also a licensed California Notary Public, a certified International Tour Guide, a former Colorado Woman's Bar Association Member of the Year (2002), and a Jennifer Robbins Scholarship Recipient.
I currently volunteer at both the Santa Ana Armory winter shelter and Laura's House Battered Woman's Shelter through the Public Law Center in Orange County California, providing legal aid to indigent members of our community. I am passionate about helping homeless veterans and spend my free time volunteering with Monday Night Mission in Los Angeles on Skid Row.
I look forward to serving you!
