About me

I am a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law (State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization). I have represented over 1000 clients in criminal matters, ranging in severity from misdemeanors to serious felonies, including rape, child molestation, robbery, arson, attempted murder and murder. I represent juvenile and adult clients in California courts.


I have conentrated on Criminal Defense law for my entire legal career. I have represented well over 1000 clients and have appeared in the majority of the courthouses in the State of California. In 2002, I earned the distinction of Certified Criminal Law Specialist from the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization. I have been quoted in both legal and popular publications on various topics in criminal law, and I have been a commentator on Court TV for several legal proceedings, including the Michael Jackson trial. I have trained and mentored dozens of lawyers.


I primarily represent clients in Los Angeles and surrounding communities, but I accept felony cases throughout the state of California.
