I was born and raised in Colombia before moving to the United States at 9 years old. I was very fortunate to receive scholarships to fund my education at the University of Georgia and Notre Dame Law School. During my time at UGA, I also received a year-long scholarship to attend UNESP in São Jose do Rio Preto, Brazil, as a Flagship Scholar.
As a litigator I have sharpened my skills to be very tough and thorough in my practice. I am passionate about creating well-developed strategies for my cases yet enjoy re-evaluating risks and counseling my clients to make the best decision whether it be through settlement or trial. I also hold a record verdict for $312,000.00 with only chiropractic treatment and approximately $20,000 in medical bills.
Outside of my professional life, I am a black belt and world medalist in Jiu Jitsu and was an NCWA national champion in wrestling. I also enjoy learning languages and I am fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, English, and have a rudimentary understanding of French.
