I am privileged to represent people at the most trying times in their lives. My personal and profession goal is complete representation for my client. People need an attorney who can be there for them beyond just the case.
I have spent years representing my clients in criminal, juvenile delinquency, and child welfare matters. This includes extensive experience in juvenile law and three years of exclusively representing parents in child welfare cases such as dependency, severance of parental rights, adoption, and guardianship.
I enjoy handling a busy caseload that has me constantly in court. I believe in what I do and this makes work easy. In 2015 I was honored by the Arizona Public Defender’s Association when they acknowledged my work and awarded me their annual Rising Star Award.
I believe the key to personal and professional success is a combination of the willingness to work, being able to break down complex situations into their smaller parts in order to manage them better, and the ability to willingly take and process criticism. It is also helpful to have an active and positive social life which I achieve by volunteering in my community.
