Talia earned her J.D. in May of 2018 at University of Southern California School of Law. Prior to that, Talia earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2015.

Before law school, Talia worked for a plaintiff’s personal injury law firm for over two years, which fueled her desire to pursue a legal career seeking justice.  While in law school, she gained practical experience performing substantive legal work as a law clerk at various law firms and as an Associate for the USC Intellectual Property and Technology Clinic. After receiving her J.D. she served as a Fellow for the highly recognized American Board of Trial Advocates (“ABOTA”) where she strengthened her training in civil practice, and honed her litigation skills.  During the ABOTA fellowship she also gained experience working with defense firms, plaintiff firms and the Los Angeles Superior Court. Her experience as an ABOTA fellow solidified her passion for litigation, trial and providing a voice for those who have been injured.

She then briefly worked for the dark side at a defense firm.  She knew Plaintiff’s life was her calling and made the switch. Talia enjoys litigating challenging cases and is dedicated to advocating on behalf of her clients to seek the justice they deserve. Her practice focuses on civil ligation including personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, and premises liability.  

In her spare time, Talia loves to spend time with her family and friends and travel any chance she gets.
