about CARMEN

 I am passionate about employment law, and am committed to providing my clients with effective representation based on their individual needs. I recognize that workplace disputes and the prospect of litigation may be extremely stressful, overwhelming, and intimidating. Therefore, I place specific emphasis on being empathetic to each client’s particular situation and carefully guiding each client through the legal process.
I have over eight years of experience representing employees in various areas of employment law, and I have practiced employment law exclusively since graduating law school in 2006. I have appeared before state and federal courts throughout the State of Texas and represented clients in numerous trials and arbitrations.  I'd love to help you as well.
