Born and raised in Palmdale, California, Ms. Sanchez attended the University of Southern California, graduating with honors, with a Bachelor of Arts in English, in 2010. She then worked at Booth & Koskoff for two years as a law clerk, during which time she discovered a passion for representing catastrophically-injured people and became a very valuable part of our trial team.
Anxious to start her legal career as soon as possible, Ms. Sanchez entered Southwestern Law School's rigorous accelerated SCALE program, in which students complete three years of law school courses in just two years. In addition to her regular course load, she was a member of the Trial Advocacy Honors Program and worked as an extern at the L.A. County District Attorney's office, gaining valuable courtroom experience. Ms. Sanchez received the very highest grade in six of her courses and graduated magna cum laude in 2014.
Ms. Sanchez re-joined Booth & Koskoff, as an attorney, right after law school. Because of her prior experience at the firm and her exemplary academic background, she has been able to jump right in and take on responsibilities and a workload well beyond what is typical for a young lawyer. In addition to handling her own caseload, she has played a key role in a number of cases that have resulted in seven-figure settlements, including cases involving sexual abuse, products liability and police negligence.
Ms. Sanchez has developed a particular expertise in cases involving the sexual and physical abuse of children in foster care or other dependency situations. Her passion for helping these vulnerable children extends beyond her legal work and includes volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate ("CASA") for children in foster care.
In her spare time, Ms. Sanchez enjoys cheering for USC football, reading and spending time with her family.
