I am a partner at Arizona Child & Family Law, where I practice in the areas of family, juvenile, and probate law. Previously, I worked at the Pima County Public Defender's Office and gained experience in adult-criminal and juvenile-delinquency defense.
I attended the University of Arizona's James E. Rogers College of Law, where I served as a Note Editor for Arizona Law Review (see We've Still Got Feelings: Re-Presenting Pets as Sentient Property, Note, 60 Ariz. L. Rev. 485 (2018)), as Vice Chief Justice of the ASUA Supreme Court, and as President of Pride Law. While at school, I participated as a Rule 38(d)-certified limited-practice student for the Child & Family Law Clinic, through which I acted as an attorney or guardian ad litem for children in juvenile-dependency cases. In addition, I also helped to run a biannual name-change clinic for transgender and gender nonconforming clients.
Before law school, I attended the University of Arizona for an anthropology major (with concentrations in primatology and evolutionary biology) and for French and theatre minors.
Although I grew up in a southeastern suburb of Phoenix, I prefer to consider myself a native of Tucson, where I have lived since the beginning of my adulthood, where I met and married my wife, and where I have made my home.
As evidenced above, I have a past full of eclectic experiences, which I believe serve me well in approaching my legal cases with knowledge, empathy, and creativity.
