As a daughter of immigrants I have watched the daily struggles that plague the underprivileged and underrepresented. I have always strived to help the underdog and practicing personal injury law has given me a platform to continue helping some of the most vulnerable.

From the moment they are injured, accident victims face an uphill battle against the endless resources of multi-billion dollar insurance companies and many times are left feeling hopeless. I am here to let those victims know that they don’t have to fight alone and that I am on their team. Together we will fight for justice and fair results to compensate for the pain that was forced upon them.

I enjoy learning people’s stories and being able to help guide them through a difficult moment in their life.  I find meaning in being an advocate for people who have been hurt by the negligence of others and obtaining a result that can make the victims whole again. I love feeling that every day I have the opportunity to change the lives of those who really need it.  

I was born in Mazatlan, Mexico, then raised in the Bay Area since the age of six. I enjoy exploring different cultures and trying their various cuisines and music. I spend my leisure time with friends and family, often hiking or walking along the beach.
