During law school, Diego was a judicial extern for Chief Judge D. Brooks Smith of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He engaged in roundtable discussions with the chambers relating to current cases on the docket, and prepared bench memoranda advising the judge and chambers about facts, laws and probable outcomes of cases on the docket. Diego has conducted research on cutting-edge legal topics such as autonomous vehicle (AV) liability and the Supreme Court’s 2021 class action decision in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez.
Diego was a summer associate at Faegre Drinker for two summers while in law school, working closely with the business litigation, class action and bankruptcy practice groups. His work included drafting a motion to dismiss with nine causes of action filed in state court, writing multiple interrogatories and requests for production, and researching for and advising a partner about shared defense privilege for confidential information.
Prior to law school, Diego worked as a ranch hand near Bozeman, Montana, and he brings to bear the same ethic and attitude of hard work for his clients.
Outside the office, Diego enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and golfing.
