My experience includes being an Adjunct Professor of Law at the Irvine University School of Law and an Associate Professor of Law at the Western States College of Law.
I came to the Roaring Fork Valley over 17 years ago, where I have practiced law ever since, with emphasis on criminal defense of all types of cases. My experience ranges from defending homicide to DUI case to persons accused of minor petty offenses. I have tried several hundred jury trials.
