Why Ferraiuoli?

After obtaining my JD, I joined Ferraiuoli because I wanted to work at a firm that not only provides clients with what the law says but also allows the attorneys to provide clients the tools to further develop their businesses. Ferraiuoli is one of the most prominent law firms in Puerto Rico because of our increasing number of talented attorneys and our commitment to provide clients with efficient and effective legal services.

Why do your clients come to you?

Prior to beginning my legal studies, I worked as a Geologist with the United States Forest Service in Decatur, Texas and the United States Army Corps of Engineers in Savannah, Georgia. As a Geologist, I acquired technical experience working in the preparation and drafting of drilling exploration permits and environmental impact reports for oil and natural gas exploration on federal land, as well as, technical reports for annual monitoring events and remediation design in civil and military Hazardous, Toxic, Radioactive Waste (HTRW) sites. This experience allows me to represent and advise clients in complex environmental legal matters. Also, I believe that my educational and professional background further allows me to navigate through the ever growing complexities of the federal and state environmental, land use, and energy statutes and regulations.

What do you find most rewarding?

At the end of the day, my most important reward is when the hard work and long hours invested in a particular matter culminates in a successful project.
