“After graduating law school and passing the bar in 2010, I came back to where it all started for me. My goal is to make sure the law is applied equally and with access to all. Growing up right here in Modesto I have seen first hand when larger organizations or more ‘affluent’ parties try to bully the little guy. I make sure I do my best to fight for you and what you think is important. We all need a voice, no matter the situation. I think what separates me most is my ability to find previously unexplored options that can result in the complete turnaround of a previously indefinite decision. I will always strive to make sure my client is being treated fairly.”
