Originally from Puerto Rico, Liann started out as a passport official at the PR Department of State. After seven years, she decided she needed a change and pursued law school, obtaining her Juris Doctor in 2012. That same year, she was admitted to practice law in Puerto Rico. She then worked as a Judicial Law Clerk, helping judges behind the scenes and drafting more than 300 judgments over three-and-a-half years.

In 2016, Liann moved her family to the United States in order to pursue a Master of Laws (LLM) at Emory University and take classes in Immigration Law. While in school, she clerked at Antonini and Cohen, helping on employment-based cases and family waivers. She realized that she enjoyed Antonini and Cohen’s less formal environment from the very start. She also enjoyed connecting with people from different countries with unique life stories.
Today, Liann's practice primarily focuses on employment, business and family cases. She has also recently expanded her practice into healthcare immigration. Outside of work, Liann enjoys spending time with her daughters and husband, and traveling back to Puerto Rico to visit friends and family.
