University of California, Hastings College of The Law
I have helped recover millions of dollars on behalf of retail and institutional investors, businesses and financial professionals. Notable outcomes I have helped obtain: recovery of more than $1 million on behalf of a Native American tribe against an international broker-dealer arising out of auction rate securities claims; a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitration award of hundreds of thousands of dollars on behalf of an elderly investor against an alternative real estate investment broker and his firm; numerous six-figure settlements and arbitration awards for financial professionals; and recovery of more than $1 million dollars on behalf of several Ponzi scheme victims.
I am licensed to practice in California and Arizona. I am AV rated with Martindale-Hubbell, with a 5 out of 5 peer rating in securities law, general practice and business law. I have been a partner with Shustak & Partners P.C. for almost nine years. I act as lead trial counsel, supervise our associates’ and paralegals’ caseloads, and am actively involved in our firm’s management, administration, and marketing affairs.
I am the 2015 president of the Filipino-American Lawyers of San Diego. I am a member of the San Diego County Bar Association, San Diego Chamber of Commerce, and Lawyers Club of San Diego. I serve on the Lawyers Club Diverse Women’s Committee. I previously served as secretary of the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California and as a national advisory board member of the American Bar Association.
Over the years, I have acted as a volunteer panelist for the U.C. Berkeley Scholarship Committee and as a volunteer judge for the University of San Diego Moot Court Honors Competition. I participate in community service activities through my professional affiliations including the SDCBA and FALSD. I enjoy mentoring law students at our local law schools. I am also the 2015 team representative for my daughter’s softball team at The Next Level travel ball organization.
I am married with two children. My husband and I enjoy devoting our time to our children’s sports and extracurricular activities. I volunteer regularly at their schools and sports leagues.
