About Me

I have decided not to run for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge in 2014. Look for my announcements for 2016 in upcoming announcements!   If you are interested in helping me, please contact me for further information.


 


I have included a photo of my paralegal!  His name is Oscar.  He claims that I work him "like a dog".  He tells me that all the assignments are "ruff".


 


I love to play tennis, paddle tennis at Venice Beach, and play with my dog, Oscar (the paralegal).


 


I have a very balanced life consisting of work, recreation, exercise and travelling, as well as spending time with friends and family.

    Doug has been a mentor of mine for several years. I had a matter that I was working on and went to him for his advice. He quickly identified issues, helped me understand arguments and had ideas on how to resolve the matter without litigation. He then took steps towards helping me resolve the matter, which I am forever grateful. I highly recommend him as a lawyer who will work hard to resolve a matter in your favor or as a mediator who will assist both parties with understanding the legal issues and pushing to resolution. Doug is an all-around super lawyer with a lot of experience on many issues. He is a fantastic go-to person.
