About me

I truly enjoy teaching and helping people. After college, I taught seventh grade science to children in a low-income area of Los Angeles. It was difficult but incredibly satisfying. I wanted the same experience as an attorney. And while what I do now is also tough--because corporations (the bad ones) go to great lengths and expend a lot of money to deny or cover up their wrongs--every effort is worth the satisfaction of securing some sense of justice for my clients.


But I am only the person I am today because of the tremendous support I receive from my family and friends. I could not effectively represent my clients without being able to empathize with them over the often horrific losses they have suffered. And realizing how devastated I would be if the actions of another led to great harm to my wife, son, daughter, brother, sister or parents, well, it helps me greatly when battling for my clients' rights.
