Paloma defends clients in product liability and toxic tort litigation—from inception to trial.

Paloma represents manufacturers and other private companies in product and personal injury claims, including cases involving high exposure and catastrophic injuries. The more complex the case, the better: she’s passionate about working with highly technical matters with a team of expert witnesses. While Paloma supports clients nationwide, she most often handles California-based matters for national and international companies, including overseeing all California products cases for a global leader in infection prevention solutions and services. In addition, Paloma has ample experience in employment law, including wage and hour class actions, PAGA representative actions, and wrongful termination matters.

Paloma preps every case as though it will be tried to verdict. Her goal is for clients to never feel forced to accept a less-than-ideal settlement, and she builds solid defenses that mean clients never need to fear trial. Paloma works on massive, multi-year cases, always with a focus on how each decision and piece of evidence will influence an eventual trial strategy.

As a young attorney, Paloma knew she had a gift for managing conflict and personalities and collaborating toward solutions. It made litigation a natural fit, and she began her legal career litigating for plaintiffs for five years—an experience that continues to shape her practice. Paloma understands how plaintiffs’ counsel thinks and operates, as well as the concerns that drive their decisions, and she builds her own strategies with this in mind.

In 2024, Paloma joined Husch Blackwell to help build the firm’s San Diego team. After a decade of litigation in the state, she’s deeply familiar with the judges and local rules, making her a true asset in California courts. Known for building close, long-term relationships with clients, Paloma prioritizes open communication so that clients are fully informed and intrinsically involved in strategic development.

Outside the Office

Paloma loves spending time with her young daughter and her extended family, all of whom live in San Diego. An almost-native (after relocating there at age two), Paloma adores her city and region and takes advantage of San Diego’s year-round beautiful weather as often as possible. You can often find her on the beach or visiting a local park with her daughter and the family dog.

Paloma is also an avid reader who loves to lose herself in a good book.
