Biography

I am a family law attorney and the founding shareholder at Rojas Family Law, Inc.

I know that every family is unique and each family law matter requires a personalized strategy to navigate through the complicated family law processes. I treat each case as if it were my own, and I zealously advocate for my clients, whether during negotiation or litigation. I strive for client satisfaction and to go “above and beyond” for my clients. Client have described me as strategic, tenacious, assertive, compassionate, and cost-conscious.

Prior to becoming an attorney, I worked for almost a decade as a senior paralegal at a highly reputable law firm in downtown Sacramento. We focused on high asset, complex family law cases. I worked full-time during law school, attended courses at night, and traveled 80 miles each day, all while raising a family. I graduated as the valedictorian of my Pacific McGeorge evening class.

Since becoming an attorney, I have remained highly motivated and driven to take on even the most complicated cases. I work hand-in-hand with my clients to prioritize their goals and concerns. And I apply legal analysis to the facts of each case in order to obtain the best results possible.

I am also a certified mediator with extensive hours of training. As a mediator, I have successfully helped parties—even those involved in contentious divorces—to resolve their matters without ever having to step inside a courtroom. I am also a member of the Sacramento Collaborative Practice Group, and am available to represent clients through the collaborative divorce process.

Since becoming an attorney, I have been honored by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star”; an honorable distinction that only 2.5% of California attorneys receive.
