About Me


I am a graduate of UCLA and UC Davis Law School.  While in law school, I received the Witkin Award for Academic Excellence in Criminal Law.  From there, virtually all my work experience revolved around criminal defense.  While in law school, I interned at a public defender's office for six months on a full-time basis.  I also clerked for a white collar criminal defense attorney for two years. 


Since then, I've switched to civil litigation, initially taking a position at a law firm practicing personal injury and probate.  After that, I practiced at another firm focusing on employment law, personal injury, and workers compensation.  I recently opened up my own firm and am available to take private clients.
