About me

Bilingual attorney (Spanish and English) with vast experience in estate planning, elder law, probate, guardianship, and special needs planning. I am also educated and experienced in the latinamerican legal system, having graduated from a law school in South America and worked as an attorney in South America for about 5 years.

My bilingual capacity and international educational background and experience allow me to effectively counsel the hispanic population in South Florida. Clients belonging to this segment may feel more comfortable with a professional familiar with the cultural and legal intricacies of the Latin American system. When these clients are confronted with complicated legal issues concerning United States law, I have the capacity, experience, and knowledge to put them at ease.
