A Short Biography

Home: Our Team

        Born and raised in Laredo, Texas. Educated at the University of Texas at Austin and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University.  I worked my way up from the Federal Public Defender's Office in Laredo to the Federal Bench. In fact, I was the first Hispanic woman appointed to serve as United States Magistrate Judge, for the Southern District Court of Texas, Laredo Division. I proudly served an eight year term, from 2000 to 2008. During my tenure I presided over one of the largest largest criminal dockets in the United States, allowing me to accumulate many lifetimes of legal experience over a short period. For the past 10 years I have worked in private practice with specialization in civil litigation, specifically; Oil and Gas, Wills and Trusts, Transactional Real Estate, Business Corporations, Tax and Employment Law.  I have worked on some high profile cases and look forward to talking with you, whatever your legal circumstances.

Our Practice Areas

Home: Practices

Federal Criminal Defense

No matter the charges against you, from complex narcotics and money laundering investigations to death penalty Federal narcotic and transporting cases, my defense of clients is vigorous and built upon a deep knowledge of Federal criminal law. In addition, I also represent clients in high profile cases involving immigration, harboring, Federal Sentencing issues, Federal asset forfeiture proceedings and much more. Without question, some of the most serious crimes and life-changing cases have to do with Federal criminal law. My office has handled some of the most high-profile cases in the nation over the last few years. With unparalleled experience, myself and my team will represent you using the most aggressive and effective criminal defense strategies available in the 21st century. 


White Collar Criminal Defense

The Federal government is as aggressive as ever when it comes to prosecuting white-collar crime, especially during these times of extreme political polarization. Our legal team has represented some high profile clients in cases related to health care fraud, public corruption, real estate financing crimes, embezzlement, banking, and corporate crimes. We believe individuals accused of white-collar crimes deserve to be represented with a combination of aggressive and novel defense strategies calibrated to the facts and circumstances surrounding each and every case.
