Dawn earned her paralegal certificate from the Lorenzo Patino Law School in 2005.  Prior to that, she worked as a Facilities Administrator for a national oil company for 7 years.   Dawn is a proud veteran of the United States Air Force, and holds an associate degree in Accounting from American River College.

Dawn has a wealth of experience in family law, bankruptcy, and eviction matters.  She is very good at explaining legal concepts to clients and putting them at ease.  Solving their legal problems is what she enjoys most about her work.

In her spare time, Dawn loves to walk her Coton du Tulear, Khloe, and play with her too formerly feral felines, Spicy and White Sox.  She is a wife, a mother, an avid gardener, and she raises butterflies.  

A Louisiana native, Dawn’s favorite catchphrases are, “Geaux Tigers,” “Geaux Saints,” and “Les Bon Temps Rouler,” or, “Let the good times roll.”
