About me

I am a criminal defense attorney, bilingual in both English and Spanish. I graduated from the California State University of Northridge (CSUN) with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, with an emphasis in Business Law. I continued my education at Pepperdine University School of Law, in Malibu, California; graduating with my Juris Doctorate. I have maintained an exemplary record with the California State Bar since 2006. After assisting the District Attorney's Office in Van Nuys, I went into private practice in Lancaster, CA. Since opening my practice, I have gained recognition as an attorney who fights aggressively for the rights and interests of my clients. Today, I concentrate exclusively on defending the criminally accused.


If you or someone you know may be facing criminal charges, please do not hesitate to call us at (661) 261-4929. We are available 24/7. If you call after hours, please leave a message and your call will be returned promptly.
