My law practice is based in Annapolis, Maryland. I have lived in Annapolis for over 20 years and have been practicing law and involved in civic life there for nearly that long.

Education

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Catholic University in Washington, DC. While studying there, I took many courses in politics, economics and computer science. I was an intern for U.S. Congressman William Lehman (D-FL). I worked my way through school and was the first person in my family to graduate from college.

I graduated with a law degree from American University, also in Washington, DC. I volunteered at two law clinics and worked part time as a law clerk at a law firm during my last two years of law school. I was also very active in the University’s oral advocacy (Moot Court) program and at graduation was awarded the honor, Order of Barristers, for being one of the top ten oral advocates in my graduating class.

Bar Memberships

I have been a member of the Maryland and District of Columbia Bars since the mid 1990s. I have been admitted to practice law before all of the state and federal courts of Maryland and the District of Columbia. I am a member of the Anne Aundel Bar Association, the Maryland Hispanic Bar Association and the Maryland State Bar Association.

Experience

I spent the first part of my career working on complex civil litigation in the insurance industry, at a law firm in Washington, DC and as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Maryland. Eventually, in an effort to achieve a better work-family balance, I started my current law practice. The ability to have more control over my workload opened up opportunities for me to pursue fascinating research compliance work, rewarding civic engagement and to serve in leadership and advisory roles on a number of boards, commissions and committees.
