About Denise

Legal Assistant

Denise Barona is the first person you’ll likely speak with when you contact Pastrana & García Injury Law. In the time that she’s been with the law firm, already Ms. Barona’s exceptional customer service, excellent attitude, and consummate professionalism have made positive impacts in our clients’ lives.

Ms. Barona takes the lead on initial conversations to understand how potential clients’ accidents happened and evaluates the individual factors in each incident. She schedules appointments with the attorneys and helps keep clients abreast of what’s happening in their cases. She knows potential clients are going through a difficult, confusing time, and is happy to answer questions.

Ultimately, Ms. Barona wants to help our clients understand what they are facing and what their options are. She hopes that with her help, clients will find what is certainly one of the most stressful times of their lives a little more bearable. And it absolutely makes her day to hear that one of our clients got the justice they deserved.
