I like to think of myself as a lawyer who strives to provide the path to enable my clients to convert their projects into reality in accordance with J.P. Morgan’s quote: “I don’t want a lawyer to tell me what I cannot do. I hire him to tell how to do what I want to do”.

Personal History:
I was born in Penapolis, a small community in the northwest region of Sao Paulo State where I had gained strong family and ethical values. I lived in Penapolis with my parents and brothers until I was 18 years old when I moved to Sao Paulo capital to initiate my Law school. Since then, I have learned my predisposition for business matters and my interest for multicultural environment. After several years of practicing as a licensed lawyer, I moved to the US to learn English and attain international experience where I met my wife with whom I had constituted a marvelous family with two adorable boys. I am a family oriented man and a very ambitious lawyer who has been building his career with no fears to take things to the next level as I endeavor to be called the “to-go” guy and be known as “the achiever”.
