Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a graduate of the University of California, San Diego and California Western School of Law. After law school, I served as a law clerk to a veteran San Diego attorney whose family law practice deals with primarily heavily contested custody matters before family law and juvenile courts, domestic violence restraining orders, guardianships, complex dissolution of marriage cases involving division of assets and debts, and criminal defense. After passing the Bar Exam, I joined another law group in San Diego for several years. At that firm, I handled straightforward and complex divorce matters from inception to judgment, including motions for child support before the Department of Child Support Services and Family Support Division. I also served as lead counsel to several civil matters. In September 2009, I temporarily joined another well-known family law firm, which also handled complex dissolutions and contested child custody matters including guardianships. I recently prevailed in a highly acrimonious guardianship matter. The case went to trial in November 2009, and, at trial, the court ordered permanent guardianship to my client, who was the paternal grandmother. I strive to enforce individual's rights in the California family law courts. I assess each client’s goals, fight for their priorities and return telephone calls promptly. I am familiar with the Family Law and Family Support Division courts in Orange County, as I appear before these departments regularly. I am a fluent Spanish speaker and represent Wilkinson & Finkbeiner Spanish-speaking clients residing throughout Orange County. In a recent case, I was able to successfully lower support arrears for a client whose ex-wife alleged that he owed $500,000. I lowered the support arrears to $150,000.
