Biography

I graduated UCLA summa cum laude, and jumped into the business world. I have extensive business experience and truthfully, my business career was going great. I managed multi-million dollar projects all over California, overseeing Commercial Property Acquisition, Development, and Syndication. I have managed over 500 employees in my tenure, and have negotiated consistently with some of the largest companies.

When I was younger, my father passed away after suffering complications from a slip and fall accident. Unfortunately, his attorneys could not get him justice or proper treatment, and my heart broke witnessing the emotional and physical toll it took on my mom. The truth is, for many years, I had a different opinion of the law. Growing up, it felt like everyone won but my family. I will admit it, I had a chip on my shoulder. I buried my feelings on the law and instead threw myself into my business career.

What began to change my perspective happened a few years down the road. A kind, beloved woman by all, my brother’s in-law, was killed by a city garbage truck. She was going about her normal day, and the truck recklessly backed into her as she crossed the street. Even though there was a settlement, no amount of money can bring her back. I again was reminded of how much the insurance companies tried to get away with during the settlement process. Seeing how they tried to devalue her life and her worth became the wake-up call I needed to get into the legal profession.

I realized that there was a great purpose with the law and that I had the power to help others with it. This became my true calling and I set out onto my path. I enrolled in law school and did not look back. I passed Law School and the California State Bar while running a full-time business that employed many families, and in my practice, I have been able to combine my business negotiation skills with my legal knowledge.
