About me

    In times of need you want somebody who has been "mellowed by years and seasoned by experiences" on your side. Someone who can emphatize and relate with you (not just talk) and after they get your fees, you can't have access to them anymore. 

    I can relate with my clients because I started my law practice after a a number of real-life experiences. I worked as Security Guard, Fireman, Sworn Police Officer, Military Officer (2nd Lieutenant), Car Salesman, Insurance Salesman, Nurse's Aide, Mailman, Mail Handler, Notary Public, Real Estate Agent and Broker, Investor, Landlord, Tenant, Franchisor, Teacher and Trainer, and now Licensed California Attorney. I've traded "punches and real bullets" in my past careers-I'll be sure to "return the shot" on your behalf.

    Medals, Citations, Awards, and Diplomas I have a lot of those but my accomplishment is nothing if I CAN'T HELP YOU.

    My practice is guided by the principle that we will "HELP YOU TIP THE BALANCE OF JUSTICE IN YOUR FAVOR". Although we DO NOT guarantee result, we will assure you that the service we provide is "SECOND TO NONE-ALWAYS NUMBER ONE". In short, the most valuable service for the money you invested in your case (such as; FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION or even as simple as answering most and/or returning your calls promptly).
