I was born in Gȕines, Havana, Cuba, but was raised in Albuquerque after my parents immigrated to the United States. I am honored to have been recognized in the 24th, 25th, 26th and 30th Editions of The Best Lawyers in America for work in the practice area of Employment Law-management and to have been selected as a Southwest Super Lawyer in Employment Litigation every year since 2007.

When I am not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with family, dancing, and cheering on the UNM Lobos.
