Thriving Beyond Expectations: Pushing Boundaries to Celebrate Life’s Milestones.

by | Jun 26, 2023

My life’s journey has been a testament to the power of resilience, determination, and pushing boundaries. This year, I am celebrating significant milestones in my career and personal life, highlighting the remarkable achievements I have attained through hard work and unwavering dedication.

As I celebrate 27 years as an attorney, 21 years as an immigrant, 19 years as first time US homeowner, 14 years as a proud U.S. citizen, 11 years as a successful business owner of my law firm- now paperless and automated law practice-, and 5 years as an enthusiastic runner, my journey continues with endless possibilities for future milestones.

Graduating from law school in Argentina in December 1996 marked the beginning of my legal career, which spans an impressive 27 years. Throughout my journey, I have remained committed to justice and advocacy, steadfastly upholding these principles in my practice.

In May 2002, I made the bold decision to move to the United States, facing the challenge of adapting to a new country and legal system head-on and three years later I bought my first home. In June 2009, I proudly became a U.S. citizen, solidifying my dedication to my adopted home.

In August 2009, I embarked on a new academic pursuit, attending law school in the United States. My dedication and hard work paid off as earned a second Juris Doctor degree and I graduated magna cum laude in December 2011, a remarkable achievement that validated my determination.

Passing the California bar exam in February 2012, and being sworn in as an attorney in both California and the District of Columbia later that year, underscored my unwavering dedication to my profession. Alongside my expertise as a national speaker on immigration law and my prolific written contributions, I have also emerged as an innovator in cutting-edge areas such as cryptocurrency and the integration of AI into my business. This forward-thinking approach has allowed me to make a lasting impact on my clients and the broader legal community, showcasing my legal acumen and adaptability in an ever-evolving landscape.

Beyond my legal career, I discovered a passion for running in 2018. Pushing my physical and mental boundaries, I completed my first half marathon in January 2019, symbolizing my determination to achieve personal milestones beyond expectations.

My journey continues with endless possibilities for future milestones. With an unwavering spirit, resilience, and dedication, I am confident that I will continue to reach new heights and make a lasting impact on those around me.

I am forever grateful to my parents, who have left me a profound legacy. They instilled in me the value of respect, trust, honor, determination, work ethic, confidence, and the freedom to pursue my own dreams. Their influence will forever guide my path to success in this life.

As I celebrate my achievements, I recognize and appreciate the support of my family, my “tribe”, mentors, colleagues, and clients—fellow immigrants who contribute to this country, overcoming obstacles and enriching their communities. Together, our stories illuminate the indomitable human spirit and remind us that success knows no boundaries. With resilience and determination, greatness is within our reach.

Thank you for joining me on this extraordinary journey, filled with milestones and accomplishments. As I embrace the future with optimism, I remain committed to working hard, pushing boundaries, and inspiring others. Here’s to many more milestones, yet to come!

With gratitude,
