Litigation Support Specialist

When I embarked on my journey as a paralegal major in college, I was uncertain about which branch of law to pursue. In 2021, I secured a paralegal internship at the Dallas County Public Defender’s Office where I found myself working in the misdemeanor division, primarily handling cases involving drug and parole violations. As time went on, I was presented with an opportunity to delve into domestic and family violence crimes. It was during my tenure in this division that I realized my true calling lay in family law matters. Eager to explore this newfound passion, I promptly sought another internship at a boutique firm specializing in CPS litigation.

Through these invaluable experiences, I came to understand the profound emotional challenges inherent in family law and the vital role that family dynamics play. Our clients approach us during their most vulnerable and tumultuous moments, and it becomes our responsibility to offer empathetic support while maintaining objectivity. By guiding them through the haze of emotions, we help them identify viable solutions to their problems.

Today, I am immensely grateful to be working side by side with some of the finest family law attorneys in the great state of Texas and am thankful for all the insight I have gained through them.
