14 years, 20 cases
I was born in McAllen, TX. During middle school, my parents decided to move to Plano, TX, for new and exciting work opportunities. After attending multiple years of high school at Plano West Senior High, I dropped out and received my G.E.D. Though the odds of returning to school and completing my higher education were against me, I did return. I began taking courses in Community College and after taking a criminal justice class, I knew my true calling was law. Immediately thereafter, I transferred to Texas Tech University and began my quest to become an attorney by majoring in Psychology and Political Science.
One month after graduating from Texas Tech, I moved to Michigan to attend law school. Throughout law school, I assisted a small law firm with employment and criminal litigation. Although the law firm was small, the attorneys showed me that David could actually beat Goliath. I assisted in a wide array of cases, everything from representing class action Fair Labor Standards Act claims to general illegal criminal searches.
After law school, I returned to Texas and began assisting the Dallas City Attorney’s office in employment matters. My job responsibilities included investigating EEOC complaints filed by employees, investigating City of Dallas employee misconduct, and assisting in the termination procedures. I then began assisting in the misdemeanor division of the Dallas County Public Defender’s office where I handled many types of misdemeanors charges for indigent clients.
