Bio: I have completed my second year at New York University School of Law, where I am a member of the Law Review. I earned a B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Scranton in 2014. I interned last summer for the Honorable James D’Auguste of the New York City Supreme Court, through the Sotomayor Judicial Internship Program. I worked prior to law school as a paralegal at Belizaire & Associates in Bloomfield, New Jersey, and at the Law Offices of Jeffrey B. Peltz in Brooklyn, contributing in both offices to services for the Spanish-speaking client base. I have also volunteered at La Amistad as a tutor for Latinx students struggling with their elementary school coursework and as a voluntary mediator for the New Jersey Courts, successfully mediating more than 150 cases in the areas of family law, landlord-tenant, contracts, nuisance and small claims. Some of my hobbies and interests include traveling, learning to cook new dishes, trying different spicy foods, video games and meditating. I am from Uruguay and am interested in incorporating my Spanish language ability into my practice.
