Carlos has had a lifelong interest in helping anyone in need, which fostered his dream of becoming an attorney. After serving in United States Army as a mechanized infantryman, Carlos later attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
He then applied to only one law school, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and was admitted. He received his Juris Doctorate from the UNC School of Law and, immediately after being licensed, began practicing in criminal and family law representing mostly Spanish-speaking clients.
After forming his own firm, Carlos expanded his client base, but still has a high percentage of Spanish-speaking clients. He now practices primarily family law and other civil matters. He is a native of Colombia, South America and came to North Carolina as a Lawful Permanent Resident when he was five years old. Though he didn’t speak a word of English when he arrived, he quickly learned the language.
He applied to naturalize shortly after turning 18 years old and was naturalized as a citizen of the United States within a year. When he is not practicing law, he enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, and working on anything mechanical.
