About me

I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Product Design, and went to Santa Clara University School of Law.  At Santa Clara University School of Law she focused my studies on Intellectual Property, Telecommunications Law and Contracts.  After law school, my interests broadened and now I take on immigration law cases.


 


When I'm not working, I like hiking and spending time with my family.

  • Greg McLawsen

    I met Mercedes years ago through the American Immigration Lawyers Association, in which we are both active members. There are only a few attorneys who exude passion for their work and strong sense of responsibility for the clients they serve. I immediately felt Mercedes was one of these attorneys, and still hold that view. She also comes to law from the background of being an engineer with a focus on design. This means that she appreciates solving problems from the perspective of the clients she serves. Mercedes is a fine professional whom I'm proud to call a colleague. (As they say in the travel guidebooks - Recommended!)
