A Bit About Me

I am a native Uruguayan raised in Miami, Florida. I’ve been working in the probate law field since 2015. Prior to that, I worked for the quality assurance department in a clinical research company where I developed meticulous attention to detail. Naturally, I’ve always been inclined to research, gathering information and analizing facts. When I decided to cross over to the law field, I immediately fell in love with the work.  In 2018, earned my paralegal studies certificate with honors from the University of Miami. 

Why I Love What I Do

I’ve always had a passion for helping others. Being a paralegal offers me the unique opportunity to do just that. Working in the probate field, I get to help our clients during a very difficult and trying time. It’s very rewarding at the end of a probate case to know we’ve helped our client receive what they were entitled to while making the process as smooth as possible for them.

About Me

I was born and raised on the West coast of Florida.  After many hot summers, I wanted a change of scenery and decided to attend Indiana University.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in History from IUPUI. I have always really enjoyed learning about different perspectives in history, law, and life. My interest in law comes from a mock trial I was a part of in middle school.  I returned to my home state for law school at the University of Miami where I am currently a J.D. Candidate. My career goal is to work in the field of estate planning. I believe that Estate Planning is important and can help provide peace and comfort to someone by letting them know that their family will be taken care of when they are gone.  

Why I Love What I Do

The reason that I want to be a lawyer is I want to help people.  I enjoy being a part of the team that helps to solve problems for clients.  Working at The Probate Law Firm has allowed me to gain knowledge that you cannot get in a law school classroom.  At the firm, I have learned about the probate process and enjoy working with the rest of the staff to figure out the best solutions.
