El derecho de familia es un tema muy amplio, pero es tan importante que afecta directamente la vida de las personas todos los días. El derecho de familia tiene que ver con casos como matrimonio, divorcio, custodia de hijos, y violencia doméstica, entre otras cosas.

Mi objetivo es hacer que el acceso al sistema judicial sea asequible para usted y ayudarlo en su caso de derecho familiar. Manejo muchos casos de derecho familiar cada año y utilizaré la experiencia que he adquirido en cada uno de esos casos para ayudarlo con su caso. El equipo de mi oficina es uno de los mejores. Trabajamos duro para asegurarnos de que su caso se maneje rápido y reciba la atención que merece.

Hablo español y la mayoría de mi práctica está dedicada a ayudar a las familias latinas a acceder al sistema de tribunales de familia. Soy muy activa en organizaciones profesionales y he ganado muchos premios locales y nacionales por mi trabajo.

Nuestra oficina hace todo, desde establecer los acuerdos prenupciales para resolver las disputas de propiedad, hasta asuntos como la custodia de los hijos y ayudar en disputas de custodia y manutención infantil y casos de violencia domestica.
