From a young age, my family instilled in me the importance of an education and having a strong work ethic. We arrived in Miami, Florida on the Mariel Boatlift exodus from Cuba when I was two years old. Thereafter, my mother worked three jobs to support our family, and she went to school at night in order to earn her Bachelor’s degree at Florida Memorial College.
In the year 2000, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Communication from Florida State University, where I was a scholarship recipient, was on the Dean's list and was a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society. Thereafter, I obtained a scholarship to attend Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center. While in law school, I was appointed as the Legal Community Relations Editor for the Moot Court Honor Society, and I was a founding editor and contributing writer on the International Citator Law Journal & Research Guide.
In 2003, I commenced my legal career as an in-house defense attorney for a large insurance company where I focused on first party insurance defense matters, auto negligence, and premises liability lawsuits. In the year 2006, I decided it was time to work representing those who were injured as a result of the negligence of others. I have worked on wrongful death cases, trucking accidents, and many disputed personal injury matters, which have all been resolved successfully for my clients.
I am a passionate and zealous advocate for my clients. I joined Rubenstein Law in 2019, in order to help personal injury clients in search for justice. I handle a variety of cases within the personal injury area of law, including motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death, premises liability, negligent security, and catastrophic accidents.
Currently I am on the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the Florida Bar. I am a member of the Minority Caucus for the American Association for Justice, and I am a member of the Florida Justice Association.
I have lived in Orlando for over 15 years and I call the "City Beautiful" my home, where I am actively involved in the Central Florida community. In my free time, I like to travel with my family. My hobbies include snow skiing, reading, and participating in long distance races, especially Run Disney races.
