Outside the Office

Diego likes to stay active and spends much of his free time outside, enjoying Austin's parks and swimming holes. He loves music and art, especially photography, and usually has a camera by his side. As an Austin native, he grew up idolizing Ricky Williams, Vince Young and Colt McCoy, and he still makes time to watch every UT football game.

Community Leadership

Diego is passionate about pro bono work. In the past, he’s helped nonprofit organizations protect wild and agricultural lands from development. He also cares about providing accessible legal advice to individuals with mental health issues and developmental disabilities.

Before his recent move back to Texas, Diego regularly staffed a legal clinic for homeless youth in Oregon. He looks forward to continuing his pro bono work in Austin.
