The greatest thing about the Justice of the Peace Courts is the interaction that you get to have with the community on a personal level during what can be the one of the most crucial times of their lives. Through my experience, I have found that at any point in someone’s life, entering a courtroom can be a very scary experience; either because of an accusation that someone is having to face or because they just do not understand the legal process. Walking family, friends, clients and the public through the legal process by answering their questions, researching for answers, and pointing them in the right direction has always brought me great joy.
After graduating from Cathedral High School, I attended UTEP where I began my legal education, with the nationally renowned Law School Preparation Institute. From UTEP, I went on to attend the University of Utah, SJ Quinney College of Law. Though I enjoyed spending my time in Utah and neighboring Colorado, I wanted to come back home to El Paso to be with family and give back to the community that raised me and did so much for myself and my family; and that was one of the best decisions of my life.
I began my legal career with the District Attorney’s Office in El Paso County. After my time there I joined the private sector and eventually opened my own law practice in 2011 where I began to work on a variety of case types to include criminal defense, civil litigation, family law, personal injury, landlord/tenant, transactional law, small claims, drivers license suspension and traffic tickets. In 2015, I was appointed by the Council of Judges to serve as a Criminal Law Magistrate for El Paso County where we conduct a wide variety of criminal law matters.
I want to continue my service to the public and the best way for me to do that is to use education and experience to assist and guide those when they walk into a courtroom. I promise to treat everyone with respect, equality and integrity. I am ready to do what it takes to become your next Justice of the Peace for Precinct 3 and I look forward to meeting and speaking to all of our constituents to see how I can be a better servant. Please join me for the campaign trail for the People’s Court of Precinct 3!
