Biography

Originally from the Dominican Republic, I moved to the United States with the goal of becoming an attorney. As an immigrant myself, I have first-hand knowledge of the intricacies of U.S. immigration law.

After moving to the United States, I attended Valencia Community College, and subsequently attended the University of Central Florida to obtain my bachelor's degree in legal studies. After graduation, I relocated to Virginia where I attended law school at William and Mary. While in law school, I worked for various public defender offices, which helped confirm my passion for criminal defense and its intersection with immigration law.

I currently work at Airington, Stone & Rockecharlie in Richmond, Virginia, where I focus on providing representation to clients with criminal defense and immigration needs.

Legal Answers
Q. I got a ticket the other day for failure to obey highway sign. What can I do to not have that on my record?
A: It depends on the facts of your case and which code section you were charged under. If you were charged under 46.2-830, and the facts of your case permit it, it would be best to seek a reduction to 46.2-830.1 in order to avoid assessing the demerit points on your driver's license. If however, the officer wrote the ticket as a way to avoid giving you a speeding ticket, and depending on the speed you were going, it might be best to pay the ticket. If you were charged under 46.2-830.1, you will not be assessing any demerit points on your driver's license. Depending on other facts in your case (i.e. sign not visible, damaged, improperly posted, etc), there may be other arguments that you can make. You always have the option of appearing in court, pleading no contest, and ask for leniency given your clean record. Good luck!
