I am a graduate of the Oklahoma City University School of Law, where I received a Juris Doctor. I received my undergraduate degree at The University of Texas at San Antonio where I studied political science and philosophy. During law school and after graduation, I worked at the Public Defender’s office in Oklahoma County defending people that could not afford to hire a private attorney. Helping these clients taught me that justice is achievable in our system. This viewpoint is not a naïve one as many might be quick to say. I consider it the ideology of a practical optimist. It may not be easy but my time with the Public Defender's office showed me that we must always work hard to make a positive difference in people's lives.
I am someone who is very strong-minded and determined. I realized early on in my career that opening my own law firm was the best way for me to advocate for people like my neighbors, my friends, my teachers…my family. A constant in our philosophy is the drive to secure the best possible outcomes under the law and protect the rights of those who have charged us with assisting them in some of life’s most difficult events. We strive to create a space where clients can feel safe in seeking counsel in the truest sense of the word.
When I was a child, my family instilled in me a sense of fairness and to always do what is right. I grew up on the west side of San Antonio, Texas, a Hispanic working-class neighborhood. We were not rich with material things but we had each other. I knew from an early age that there a people in life that do extremely well and others that do very poorly. Just because someone or some company is wealthy and powerful, does not mean that their rights are any more important that yours or mine, after all, we are equal under the law. We have successfully taken on a variety of cases. Whether we fight with you against a large multinational corporation like General Motors, the government or some fly-by-night company, it doesn’t make any difference to us. This is what we do, it's our job.
