She unequivocally welcomes the opportunity to go to trial with ample conviction that her efforts will yield deserving results.

Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Berrios commenced her legal career, for nearly a decade, at a large law firm immersed in the insurance defense field assisting and defending various owners, contractors, manufacturers and national supermarket, restaurant and retail chains against high exposure personal injury and property damage lawsuits, including construction accidents, and construction defect matters.

Attending law school in Houston, Texas, Ms. Berrios dove into the endless opportunities throughout her legal education, serving as Head Representative for the top global leader in legal education and bar preparation, Barbri. Additionally, Ms. Berrios was the Vice President of The Entertainment and Sports Law Society, member of the Women in Law Society, a worthy mock trial opponent, and mentor for incoming first-year law students. While conducting her studies, Ms. Berrios clerked for the Hon. DeSean Jones in Harris County District Court and for a private firm, focusing on family law, and probate and estate administration.

Ms. Berrios received her Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice with Minors in Art and Psychology from Rider University. She graduated amongst the top ten individuals in her field of study. During her undergraduate experience, Ms. Berrios was a mentor to General Liberal Arts and Sciences students, a member of the Peer Leadership Council, Law and Justice Society, Art Society, Psychology Club, and Step Team, Club Field Hockey Captain, and Assistant Manager for the Rider University Art Gallery. 

An avid fan of philanthropy and community service, amongst her other efforts and contributions, Ms. Berrios has provided funds, from organizations she was a part of in law school, raised funds, and donated her own funds to underprivileged families and students struggling to pay for law school. She also regularly built homes during her weekends in Southern New Jersey for families devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Ms. Berrios additionally has an artistic side as she has had several paintings featured in various museums in New Jersey and requests for commissioned pieces.

Ms. Berrios grew up in both New York and New Jersey and regularly frequents Texas, an addition to the places she now calls home, following the completion of her legal education. Moving forward in her career, she intends to further her practice throughout various states.
