About me

I share my practice between my two passions: family law--as well as high-conflict, emotionally charged matters such as civil harassment and neighbor disputes--and civil trial practice. 


I went to law school at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where I graduated "with great distinction." I am also a graduate of Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College, which is considered one of the most prestigious and selective trial advocacy colleges in America.


Since I joined the legal field over a decade ago, I have successfully helped numerous clients, both women and men, often at the hardest time in their lives. From low-income Spanish speaking individuals in Sacramento, to successful business owners in Auburn, Placerville and El Dorado Hills, I have effectively represented my clients' interests both in and out of court. 


Born and raised in Uruguay, South America, I am fluent in both Spanish and English, having received a degree in English from the Cambridge University. My undergraduate and graduate studies were in chemistry and pharmacy at the Universidad de la Republica, in Montevideo, Uruguay. After traveling the world, I chose Northern California, more specifically El Dorado County, as my home. 


I am thorough and pay great attention to detail. I will listen to you, take the time to identify your concerns and lay out a clear strategy to accomplish your goals. Responsiveness to my clients is one of my highest priorities.  I hear I am thoughtful and compassionate, yet tough and assertive. I will use my training in mediation and collaborative practice when possible, but will aggressively protect your interests in the courtroom when necessary.


In my free time, I enjoy traveling, mountain biking and playing golf with my husband, Dave. 


Unlike my partner Beau Weiner, I prefer Windows over Mac, and I own an Android smartphone.
