After graduating from the law school at the University of Oregon, Miranda practiced workers’ compensation litigation at a well-established firm in the Portland Metro area. She was appointed an Administrative Law Judge for the State of Oregon in 2010, and presided over hundreds of cases, involving issues from unemployment to child support.
Although Miranda enjoyed her time as an ALJ, she missed advocating zealously for individual clients. She returned to private practice, this time in business for herself, and has enjoyed a thriving practice ever since. Miranda focuses her practice exclusively on family law because she enjoys the varied and complex legal issues, but mostly because she enjoys working with people. She understands that while she engages with a client on his or her most important issues for some time, it is the client who lives with the results of a case.
She works hard to ensure that the client and his or her family moves forward and is happy and successful. When Miranda is not advocating on behalf of her clients, she enjoys wine tasting, volunteering in the community, and coaching her daughter’s sports teams, whether she knows how to play the sport herself or not.
