After spending almost a decade defending large companies and government agencies, I opened my own firm in 2016 with two partners so we could help individuals like you obtain justice and fair compensation. I am a trial attorney focused 100% on litigating personal injury, product liability and employment claims.
While in law school, I served as Lead Articles Editor of the Whittier Law Review and member of the Moot Court Honors Board. I also received the CALI Excellence Award in both Trade Secrets Law and Remedies, was named to the Dean’s List and Honor Roll and was awarded the Dean’s Merit Scholarship. For the last three years, I have been named to the Super Lawyers Magazine Rising Stars list.
In my last year of law school, I was honored to serve as a judicial extern for the Honorable Andrew J. Guilford, United States District Court Judge for the Central District of California, which included a chance to work in chambers with former Chief Judge Alex Kozinski on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Seattle, WA.
Prior to law school, I received a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Arizona, which trained me in numerous health related disciplines, including epidemiology and environmental health. My thesis work was completed through a graduate internship with the Orange County Health Care Agency’s Epidemiology Division. In college, I was a varsity member of the track & field team and was honored with the Golden Eagle Scholar-Athlete Award.
