Biography

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. I have a passion for helping others and decided to be an attorney to be an advocate for injured individuals. After college, I attended South Texas College of Law Houston. During law school, I was a Student Ambassador, Vice President of the Criminal Law Society, and a member of the Hispanic Law Students Association and Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity. In addition to my studies, I gained experience as a law clerk at several personal injury, general civil litigation, probate litigation, and estate planning law firms.

Following graduation, I was a Briefing Attorney with The Honorable Michael B. Newman of Harris County Probate Court No. 2 in Houston, Texas. After my time with the court, I worked as a Contract Attorney for a family law and civil litigation firm handling divorce, custody, and general civil litigation claims.

I relocated to North Carolina in 2022, and began my career with the Kellum Law Firm. I practice in the areas of personal injury and workers’ compensation. I am the first lawyer in my family, and am extremely proud of my ability to be an advocate for others going through difficult times. I hope to continue to build on my negotiation experience and work zealously to maximize the value of my client’s cases.

Our personal injury practice covers the entire east coast including the triangle and its surrounding areas. It has been and will continue to be my pleasure to serve the injured and fight for the compensation they need and deserve! WE'RE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY!
