Personal Note

Client satisfaction is my number one priority. When necessary, I will take a case to trial and get the best possible result for our clients. I enjoy the challenges of trials, but if all possible, I try to shut down a case as soon as possible.

Every chance I get to use my passport, I will use it to travel to a country that I've never been to. I love traveling to Latin America because the people and culture are amazing. I've made many good friends in travels. I often like to return to Panama, where I can catch up with friends and use Panama as a hub to travel to other countries in the Caribbean and Latin America.
