Court A Jacksonville-raised attorney, I emigrated from the Philippines in my early teens. I attended and graduated from Bishop Kenny High School and the University Of North Florida obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance (Corporate track). After several years as a paralegal for local attorneys and in the corporate arena (Merrill Lynch) as the primary paralegal in charge of SEC registration/closings of real-estate mortgage interest conduits (REMICs), I attended and graduated from Florida Costal School of Law, with honors.

Court Upon admission to The Florida Bar in October 2004, I worked as an associate with The Coleman Law Firm, and within a few months, established my own solo practice. My firm concentrates in Family Law, general litigation, estate planning, probate and guardianships, foreclosure defense, and Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Our office is one of only a few legal firms in Jacksonville who prepares Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs) and similar “pension-plan-dividing” orders.

Interestingly, my career in the field of law began in high school. After winning the award for fastest Gregg shorthand skills and fastest typist, I sought a career as a legal secretary. Soon after I was promoted to legal assistant status. As an immigrant, I understand full well the issues relating to obtaining legal status and citizenship. Coming from a country that was in the midst of martial law, I saw the importance of an effective Constitution and legal system. As a former legal assistant, I learned how to communicate with clients and explain the law to them in plain and simple terms. As an attorney, I provide clients with highly competent, passionate, and compassionate legal counsel.
