Growing up in the Sanger, California, I saw first hand the need for legal representation in the Central Valley. Often, people go without representation because they cannot afford it and do not know where to turn. As a graduate of Fresno Pacific University with a degree in Organizational Leadership, I truly understand the concept of servant leadership. I then went on to obtain a Juris Doctor degree from San Joaquin College of Law. Throughout my college years, I assisted as a paralegal in the areas of Social Security Disability law, estate planning, family law, criminal law, and arbitration/mediation. While in law school, I received the Witkin Award for Torts, Real Property and wills & Trusts.
As a solo practitioner, I practice with the mindset of a servant leader in that my clients will come first and will be treated as people rather than numbers or files. I represent disabled children and adults in their pursuit for Social Security disability and SSI benefits. I also assist Veterans in pursuit of their disability benefits.
