In between preparing witnesses for depositions, requests for litigation discovery, and trial prep, we caught up with litigation and regulatory law attorney Lidiana Rios for a quick Attorney Spotlight. Here’s what we learned:

Can you describe yourself in five words?

Vibrant, passionate, witty, caring, adventurous.

What do you like about what you do for a living? What lights you up?

I love the puzzle of legal thinking—taking a complex problem, researching it, distilling it down, and solving it. I’m also most in my zone when I’m writing.

What is your favorite quote?

“Problem-solving is hunting; it is savage pleasure and we are born to it.”

Thomas Harris

If you weren’t a lawyer, what would you be?

A professional dancer. But that’s such a short-lived career, I would have ended up in law school eventually! I would definitely have enjoyed design—interior design, fashion design, or graphic design. I also would have loved to be a travel writer.
