I have over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I have practiced in the area of family law for over 10 years. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to the pursuit of excellence in my field, always striving to stay current with the latest industry trends and legal updates.
This dedication, combined with my vast experience and skillset, makes me an effective and sought-after legal professional. I take great pride in the work I do and the positive impact it has on the lives of my clients and the broader community.
In addition to my legal expertise, I have also previously showcased my knowledge and passion for the law through hosting a weekly 30-minute community legal talk show, “Law on Air.” This experience further demonstrated my commitment to providing legal education and resources to my community. Moreover, I have hosted and participated in numerous legal workshops, which allowed me to share my expertise and assist others in understanding complex legal matters.
As an accomplished attorney with a passion for community service, I have dedicated my career to providing legal assistance to those in need and contributing to various local initiatives that promote social welfare.
As a mediator for the L.A. City Attorney Alternative Dispute Resolution Program, my role was to resolve conflicts fairly and efficiently, while fostering understanding between parties. In my role as a facilitator with the L.A. City Attorney’s Office Neighborhood Justice Program, I worked to promote dialogue and collaboration within our communities to ensure a safer and more equitable environment for all. My commitment to pro-bono legal services is also evident through my ongoing involvement with the Harriet Buhai Center for Family Law.
As a proactive member of the legal community, I served as the Co-Chair for the Black Women Lawyer’s Association of Los Angeles Annual Scholarship Fundraiser in 2011 and as a Committee Chair for the American Bar Association’s Environment, Energy, and Resources Minority Scholarship. It is my belief that providing educational opportunities for minority students is crucial to fostering a diverse and inclusive legal profession.
My dedication to community service extends beyond legal aid, as demonstrated by my volunteer work at the Crenshaw Church of Christ Food Pantry from 2009 to 2010, where I helped distribute food to those in need. Finally, I am proud to have been a big sister for the Big Sister of Los Angeles program, where I had the opportunity to mentor and guide a young girl as she navigated the challenges and triumphs of life.
I believe that my personal biography reflects my unwavering commitment to the practice of law, my dedication to community service, and my passion for fostering positive change within the legal profession and society as a whole.
