I have been practicing law primarily as a sole practitioner for over 15
years in Los Angeles, California. I attended college at Cal-State Northridge and law school at UWLA. At UWLA I was president of the Black Law Students Association.
I have argued over 100 cases to jury
in both state and federal court. Additionally I have gotten dismissals or acquittals in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego Counties.
In 2000 I had the opportunity to join and help run a startup sports
management company. I became a Certified NFL Contract Advisor in 2001.
Our objectives and goals were to prospect, recruit and sign college
players to NFL contracts. I primarily recruited players on the west
coast traveling to Pulman Washington, Eugene Oregon, and San Diego,
I have always looked to communicate with others. In 2000 I published a
criminal defense lawyers handbook entitled "Ready for the Defense." I
am currently working on making my handbook into an E Book. I have also
worked for Football.Com as a College Football Analyst and analyst for
the Arena Football League.
One area I pride myself on is my professional memberships with the relationships and learning opportunties they present. Currently maintain memberships in National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Los Angeles County Bar Association, Association of Federal Defenders Association, and Famalies Against Mandatory Minimums.
I maintain offices in Los Angeles, Long Beach and Orange County. Consultations are free and I am always available via cell phone.

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Disbarment is the most serious penalty for a lawyer. If this attorney is currently practicing law, you should contact the California State Bar to understand the reasons for disbarment.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
