Dispute Resolution


Experience

I have had experience working in the law in California, Idaho and now New Mexico.  I began my legal experience interning with the Honorable Michael McConnell of the 10th Circuit.  In California, I worked as an advocate for children with special needs.  After graduating law school, I moved to Idaho where I worked as a prosecutor for Nampa and Caldwell city in Canyon County.  I focused on traffic and misdemeanor cases, including DWIs, Domestic Violence, Petty Theft, Drugs and juvenile offenses.  I then opened my own law firm where I worked with child protection cases and both felony and misdemeanor defense.  I also have worked with wills and trusts, adoptions, guardianship, real estate matters, special education and post conviction appeals. In Idaho, I was a member of the Idaho Child Protection Committee and the Canyon County Domestic Violence board. After moving to Los Alamos, I worked as a coordinator for the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and Teen Court and was a member of the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and the DWI Planning Committee.  I teach at UNM-LA in Criminal Law and Business Law.  I am also a board member for Family Strengths Network Board and Los Alamos Lodgers Tax Board.
