My nickname is … Tay.
I can’t go a day without … coffee.
If you were in my office, you’d … see a lot of law enforcement memorabilia. I have patches
and challenge coins from various law enforcement agencies around New Mexico. I also have my
grandfather’s name badge from his uniform in the 1950s and some old recruiting posters from our
local police department. My favorite piece is a frame with photographs of my great-great-grandfather,
grandfather, father and husband in their uniforms.
My colleagues would be surprised to know that … I played college basketball at
Eastern New Mexico University, [the Greyhounds]. I played center, or the five position.
When I was a newbie lawyer, I … still am a newbie lawyer.
The lawyer I most admire is …. my boss, Luis Robles—the hardest-working and most deliberate
person I know. He taught me everything I needed to know about being a lawyer.
The quality I most like in a lawyer is … integrity.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a police officer.
When I win a case, I celebrate by … cheering in my office if it is a motion, or if it is a trial,
cheering once I get to my car.
A different practice area that intrigues me is … immigration law—learning about different
cultures and why people want to come to the United States.
My real-life heroes are … my parents.
On weekends I … binge-watch shows on Netflix.
The last TV show I binge-watched was …
How I Met Your Mother
My most bizarre talent is … I can wiggle my ears.
The talent I wish I had is … being a good dancer.
The craziest thing I witnessed in a courtroom was … a potential juror saying that
if you want to use the civil justice system in this country, you should speak “American.”
The movie line I quote most often is … “Are those your skis? Both of them?”
Dumb & Dumber
I wish I had invented … smartphones.
Nothing cheers me up like … spending time with my son.
My guilty pleasure is … sunflower seeds.
