About me

My passion for the law began before I graduated high school.  I was raised outside of Dallas, Texas and spent my senior year working for the Collin County District Attorney in a mentorship program.  I worked hard to establish a Teen Court in my home town and was honored to receive recognition through my school, local media and local government.  


I attended Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where I received a full academic scholarship.  I was also the recipient of the Joe Martin Scholarship from Bank of America. In undergrad, I majored in Political Science and minored in Theater and Spanish. I traveled abroad 3 of my 4 years in college including a semester long stay in Sevilla, Spain.  As a senior at Coe College, I was on the Judicial Board and was the Chair of a Department in my College Students Activities Committee.


During my spare time I judge moot court competitions.  I am a member of the California DUI Lawyers Association, CPDA, California Women's Lawyer, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and California Association of Criminal Justice.  I currently serve as the Treasurer of the Newport Harbor Bar Association.  I have the proud distinction of passing the California State Bar Exam on the first try and have been privileged to work for the Law Offices of Thomas Wallin since 2008.
