BettinaBettina joined Augustin Egelsee in 2015 as a bilingual paralegal after years as a customer service manager. She earned her associates degree from Westwood College in Paralegal Studies, graduating with Highest Honors, all while raising her beautiful daughter together with her supportive and loving husband. During her time at Westwood, Bettina had the privilege to represent her school as a student liaison for the Orange County Paralegal Association where she actively networked and gained extensive knowledge of the role and responsibility of a paralegal.

She is an active volunteer within her church's youth programs, regularly assisting at the local family daycare center. She is a very proud mother and has been described as a relentless advocate for all children.

As a native Spanish speaker, Bettina is the day-to-day contact for our Spanish speaking clients. Her gravitating personality, incredible knowledge of legal procedure and, most importantly, her joy for helping families are what make her such an incredible asset for our firm and for our clients.

"I'm driven by the amazing relationships that I build with our clients; when I hear the feedback from parents and realize the positive impact that I have in these children's lives, I feel like I'm doing something bigger than myself. I'm helping to give a voice to the underserved children, helping to give them a real chance to grow, learn and succeed...that's what motivates me every single day."
