I graduated from law school in 2008 with honors. While in law school, I received Moot Court honors. In addition to that, I earned Witkin awards for academic achievement in Legal Research and Writing and Advanced Community Property. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy with a minor in economics from California State University, Chico.
As a bit of background, I was inspired to enter the legal profession during a time when I was actively involved in the entertainment industry. I was formerly with a talent agency and a feature film production company. I became exposed to the legal profession and how it assists people. I attribute my decision to pursue a law career to one of the attorneys I met at the talent agency.
After law school, the initial years of my legal career included handling criminal and civil law cases in and out of the courtroom, with an emphasis on family law matters. Over the past five years I have been fortunate to work in the areas of family law counseling and advocacy for family law litigants. I have experience working with opposing counsel from small to large firms in both Ventura and Los Angeles counties.
Since joining Zonder Family Law, I devote my practice exclusively to family law clients. Litigation through the courts is only one avenue to the resolution of family law matters. Other avenues include mediation and collaboration, which focus on resolving a case without going to court.
There is nothing more professionally rewarding then successfully resolving a client’s case. I help clients resolve their cases, whether they are litigating through the courts or they want to negotiate a settlement outside of court.
