I was born and raised in New York City and am a die-hard Yankee fan. I am fluent in Spanish and prior to entering law school, I was a Teach For America Corps Member, teaching bilingual elementary school in Washington, D.C. Now, my litigation and trial practice focuses on the defense of catastrophic personal injury cases. I am honored to have earned the preeminent AV rating by Martindale-Hubbell, be recognized by Best Lawyers in America and named a Southwest Super Lawyer. Most recently, my colleagues presented me with the 2018 New Mexico Defense Lawyer of the Year Award. I am also a passionate baseball mom, home cook, salsa music enthusiast and self-proclaimed wine connoisseur!
