Uribio
Client reviews

I am a partner in Arizona Child & Family Law, and a native of Tucson. I attended grade school here before graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Political Science. I then spent several years working as a courtroom clerk at the Pima County Superior Court, before moving to Virginia to attend law school.

I attended the George Mason University School of Law, where I was vice president of the GMU branch of the American Constitution Society, and on the board of the Trial Advocacy Association. While in Virginia, I worked with the Office of the Public Defender in Loudon and Fairfax Counties on cases ranging from simple possession to first-degree murder. Later, I worked for Northern Virginia Legal Services, with a focus on offering free representation to victims of domestic violence in protection order hearings.

I returned to Tucson to accept a position with the Pima County Office of Children's Counsel (OCC) representing children in abuse and neglect cases and in contentious divorce and child custody proceedings. During my years at the OCC, I litigated countless dependency and severance cases, prosecuted severances on behalf of my child clients, and helped to give voice to children at risk of being lost in the system.

I left the OCC to go into private practice, and in 2016 I joined Arizona Child & Family Law as a partner.  I practice a straightforward approach to divorce, child-custody, dependency, and severance cases. Additionally, I have successfully represented numerous grandparents and third-party intervenors in visitation, placement, and in loco parentis actions.

I am a member of the Arizona State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Pima County Bar Association, and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. 

Court involvement is particularly hard on children, and I believe that it is vitally important in any family or juvenile law proceeding that we not lose sight of that.

I have two young kids of my own who attend school at Satori, where I serve on the board.

    I am most grateful for the work Mr. Palmer conducted in my behalf. It was of consolation to me that he felt I was justified in managing visitation with a remote family member. It was also consoling to hear that he saw another matter that was not his area of expertise as being of urgent concern an...
