As a bilingual speaker, I realized from an early age the difficulty that people who do not speak English in this country face.

I knew that whatever profession I chose, I wanted to use my ability to speak both Spanish and English to help those who cannot speak English.

That is when I learned about different types of law related to non-English speakers, and decided to become a lawyer. I worked at a nonprofit immigration group straight out of law school helping Spanish speaking immigrants, and then I did personal injury for two years. After that, I got married and moved to Connecticut, where I started working at Ruane Attorneys.

I became a lawyer because I believe everyone deserves competent representation, regardless of where they are in life. No one is perfect and people make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes require the help of a lawyer. My favorite part about practicing law is being able to positively affect someone’s life by making a hard situation easier to manage.

I’m fully bilingual so when it comes to the immigration cases at the firm, I like meeting people from different countries and I firmly believe that everyone who wants to live here in the United States should be able to do so legally. I also enjoy working on habeas corpus cases for my clients.

I’m passionate about my family, my dogs, and my children. I love the outdoors and love running and hiking with my dogs.
