Thank you for visiting our page. Here’s a little bit about myself, if you’re looking for my professional please click here.
I don’t ever remember a time when I did not want to be an attorney.
I grew up in Colombia, both my parents were attorneys. My mother taught law, my father practiced and served in the Colombian Supreme Court. I thought everything they did, everything they talked about was fascinating.
I planned on following my parents’ routes to a legal career but the well-chronicled events in Colombia that culminated in civil war interfered. I immigrated to the United States in January, 2000.
It was hard. I left behind my family, culture, and heritage. But, I never left behind the goal of being a lawyer.
I learned English at the University of Texas, worked, learned more about the United States, more English, worked some more in a variety of jobs, listened, watched. Ultimately, over my first nine years in the United States, I was able to put myself through Gonzaga University, where I graduated with honors from both the undergraduate and law school programs.
Along the way, I also become a business owner, a homeowner, a husband, a father, a writer, and finally, a United States citizen.
I’m clear proof that despite the obstacles – and they are very much there – there is path to the American Dream for an immigrant who wants it.
I’m here to help in any way I can.
I enjoy writing, reading, photography (please see some of my photos below), coaching my daughter’s soccer team, traveling, Spanish, Latin and Hispanic culture, and learning and knowing more about our laws.
