Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15.

Soto, a resident of Leonia (New Jersey), concentrates her practice representing New Jersey school boards on education law matters with an emphasis on special education, litigation, and counseling. She is admitted to practice in New Jersey and New York and is an active member of the New Jersey State Bar Association as well as the Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey. She earned her B.A. degree in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania and received her J.D. from New York University School of Law.
