What was your proudest moment?

What is your alma mater?
I attended the University of San Diego for undergraduate, graduate, and law school.

As we analyze new and evolving industries, we’re working on enhancing our practice groups and our legal services delivery model to be best equipped to serve our clients in this modern landscape.
Who is your hero?
Hands down, my dad is my hero. Born in East Los Angeles, he taught me the value of hard work, determination, and to have compassion for others.
What do you like best about Los Angeles?
I love the diverse and vibrant community. Los Angeles has so much to offer with a variety of places especially this time of year - The Hollywood Bowl, LA Live, Dodger Stadium, Santa Monica pier, etc.
