I grew up in Bakersfield and graduated from Bakersfield High School. After high school, I moved to Los Angeles to attend Loyola Marymount University. While at Loyola, I became interested in becoming an attorney and had the opportunity to intern at two law firms. These experiences confirmed my interest in the law, so I decided to transition into a legal career immediately after law school. I attended Santa Clara Law, where I began to develop a background in litigation by working for two judges and a litigation firm. I graduated magna cum laude from Santa Clara in May 2011. As an attorney at KDG, I focus my practice on complex litigation matters involving business torts, environmental law, and real estate. I learned quickly that no two disputes are alike, and I enjoy working to develop an understanding of the particular issue involved in each matter. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling and road cycling on the excellent hills we have here in Kern County.
||What is the most important thing they don't teach you in law school?|
||There are no clients in law school. The responsibility that comes with knowing that the work you do will have a direct and substantial impact on a person or business is something that can only be appreciated through experience.|
