I was born in Alexandria, Virginia. Originally, my family is from Argentina, both of my parents having immigrated to the United States in 1976. I grew up in varying parts of the country, including Pittsburgh, Washington D.C., Boston, and Houston.

In 1999, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Spanish minor. I went on to obtain my J.D. with a concentration in General Civil Litigation from Baylor Law School in Waco, Texas, after which I moved back to Austin to practice with the law firm of Burns, Anderson, Jury & Brenner, L.L.P. for three years. I worked in the areas of general litigation, insurance practices and coverage, mold, complex commercial litigation, workers compensation, railroad, and toxic exposure involving Toluene diisocyanate, mold, and diesel exhaust.

Since 2005, I have successfully represented numerous individuals who have suffered an injury or loss as a result of the irresponsibility of another. I am married to a wonderful and supportive woman and have two high-energy toddlers at home. In my spare time (when I have it), I enjoy home brewing, camping with my family, and bbq.
