I was born in Memphis, Tennessee. I am the daughter of a first-generation immigrant; my father is a Greek-South African, but my mother is native to New Jersey. I grew up in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
I double majored at University of California in Santa Barbara in both Classics and Philosophy. I then returned to my home state of Pennsylvania for law school. I attended Pennsylvania State University’s Law School. After graduation, I worked as a criminal defense attorney in Pennsylvania for about two years. Then, I pack up my U-haul and returned to California. In 2007, I was admitted to practice law in California.
I practice both criminal and family law. I have over 15 years of litigation experience. In my career, I first chaired over 50 jury trials and twelve bench trials to verdict. I have conducted tens of thousands of hearings and written writs of habeas corpus and appeals. I have spent the last 15 years fighting in court. I am one of the few people who is lucky enough to say, I love what I do. I also love my son, my dog and horses.
I am passionate, motivated, experienced, empathetic, energetic and waiting to fight for you.
