Rita is a recent transplant from New Jersey, where she has lived the majority of her life. She started her legal career as a paralegal before deciding to move forward with formal education to become an attorney. She earned an Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies before double majoring in Sociology and Psychology at Kean University of Union. Rita ultimately decided to accept a seat at the Rutgers Law School Newark campus, where she was able to earn her Juris Doctorate. She is now admitted to the bar of both New Mexico and New Jersey and is a New Jersey Certified Mediator.
Rita has worked in many areas of the legal profession from residential real estate to municipal matters to immigration. Nevertheless, her passion for family law has been her main focus throughout her school and professional career. Rita now works exclusively in family law matters such as divorce, custody, and guardianship cases.
Rita uses her background in all areas of law, sociology, and psychology to provide a holistic approach to her client’s legal matters. She is very happy to resolve any issue by crafting a legally binding agreement between family members or to take matters that cannot be resolved amicably to court and fight for your interests.
