Endorsed by Congressman Eric Swalwell

and the Honorable Carol S. Brosnahan

Experience    Integrity    Diversity


As the first-place finisher in the March primary election and a defense attorney with over 25 years of courtroom experience, I am running for Superior Court Judge in Alameda County to ensure that all people encounter a level playing field when entering the courtroom. Having been active both personally and professionally in Alameda County for decades, I have worked with some of the most vulnerable populations.  My perspective as a Latina, a lesbian, and a defender would enhance the diversity on the bench.  Please join me in my commitment to improving equal access to justice.

I am honored to be endorsed by the Honorable Carol S. Brosnahan who occupies the seat for which I am running and who will retire after more than 40 years as a Judge in this county.  

I invite you to see my full list of endorsements from other judges, professionals and community leaders who believe my legal acumen, professionalism, temperament, personal experience and commitment to justice make me the right choice for judge.


I am thrilled to have the opportunity to run for the judicial seat currently held by the legendary Hon. Carol Brosnahan who was appointed to the bench in 1979.

Since I began my legal career 25 years ago, I have had the privilege of appearing in her court many times. I have been in awe at her depth of knowledge of the people who appeared in her court; she knew their names, their families, whether they were first time or repeat visitors and whether a factor in their case was mental health or addiction.  

What struck me even more is her unending understanding and compassion for those who suffer from mental illness, which is regularly exhibited in her commitment to the Behavioral Health Court and Conservatorship Court and to those who come before her in those courtrooms.  

If I am elected, I will strive to honor Judge Brosnahan’s legacy of compassion and justice. 

It would be an immense honor to follow in her footsteps.
