Education and Background

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas and moved to California in 2001. I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with honors and high distinction in 2006, and I earned my law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of Law, in 2009. The honors I received at Hastings, include CALI and Witkin awards in Constitutional Law II, United Nations Systems, and International War Crimes Prosecution. My published scholarly articles include: “Legal Implications of the Enemy Entity Designation of the Gaza Strip” published in the Hastings International and Comparative Law Review (32 Hast. Int’l & Comp. L. Rev. 643 (2009)); “International Legal Dimensions of Conflict in the Gaza Strip” (with George Bisharat, et al.) published in the Denver Journal of International Law and Policy (38 Denv. J. Int’l L. & Pol’y 41 (2009)); “Freedom Thwarted: Israel’s Illegal Attack on the Gaza Flotilla” published in the Berkeley Journal of Middle Eastern and Islamic Law (4 Berkeley J. Middle E. & Islamic L. 1 (2011)). Immediately before law school, I was an intern for the 165th Civil District Court of Harris County, TX, Honorable Elizabeth Ray and, while I was in law school at Hastings, I worked as an associate in Brussels, Belgium at the Mossawa Center, European Union Office, and at the Al Mustakbal Foundation for Strategic and Policy Studies, a think tank in Ramallah, West Bank.

Legal Experience

I am admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in California and have been admitted to practice pro hac vice in Texas and Ohio. I began working at Aiman-Smith & Marcy in 2011. Recognizing my interest in securities law, in 2014 the firm sponsored a sabbatical for my LL.M (Master of Laws) degree in securities regulation from UCLA School of Law, where I was a Dean’s Fellow and graduated in the top 10% of my class. Securities cases and complex employment cases pose challenging legal issues. I relish this complexity and especially enjoy using my advanced legal understanding to determine the best way to approach a case and achieve the greatest possible recovery for the firm’s clients.
