I’m originally from California. My parents moved back to Mexico when I was about a year and a half. I grew up in Mexico. My first language is Spanish. We then moved to El Paso, Texas. I went to University of Texas El Paso, got recruited for law school here in Indianapolis. Well I did have to work my way through law school. While it helped for the bills, which I really needed, it also helped me with my experience. Immediately after that, I went to a firm that was a general practice, but I was one of the first attorneys to help develop their personal injury site. With that experience, I was fortunate enough to come to Wagner Reese My daily practice involves about 50% personal injury and about 50% worker’s compensation.
My personal injury practice includes auto accidents, truck accidents, construction accidents, and wrongful death. My worker’s compensation practice includes helping those that have been injured on the job, including undocumented workers who have rights in the state of Indiana. The favorite part of my practice is not only getting people what they deserve under the laws of the state of Indiana, but also listening. I take my part as a counselor very seriously. If you’ve been injured in an accident and need help, call me today.
