I am lawyer with 20+ years experience in civil litigation and dispute resolution.
Originally from Guatemala, Central America, I moved to Canada when I was 15 years old. I earned a Bachelor Arts in History and Geography from Western University, followed by a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and Master of Laws in Commercial Law (LLM) from Cardiff University. I was called to the Bar in Alberta in 1998; I represented clients at all levels of Alberta Courts and in the Federal Court. I then moved to Ontario, where I was called to the Bar in 2004; I represent clients at all levels of Court in Ontario and before tribunals.
In addition to the practice of law, I am a professor at Fanshawe College (Lawrence Kinlin School of Business) and an instructor at triOS College, teaching a variety of law related courses. I am active in the business community as a member of The Entrepreneur Nation (2019) and the London Chamber of Commerce (2012 – 2016) and I volunteer for a number of sport, business, and professional organizations including the Oakridge Optimist Soccer Club (2018-2019), Southend United Soccer Club (2013-2017) and the Middlesex Law Association Board of Trustees (2006-2009).
