About me

I was born in McAllen, Texas and have lived here all of my life other than when away at school.  I am married and the mother of four.   I am fluent in the Spanish language and believe that a client deserves the best effort of the attorney at all times.  I believe my approach to litigation is more inclusive of many factors other than just the dictates of the law.  Understanding the client's needs and guiding the client toward a positive resolution is the goal of the firm.
