An Interview with Lic. Serrano:


Q: What made you want to become a lawyer?

 It runs in the family since my father is a lawyer, living with the emotions of a litigator it motivated me; observing my father working form early morning to late at night and the expressions on his face when resolving client’s matters opened a window of my desire to become an attorney.
