About Me

 


I have over 18 years of practice experience spanning multiple states.  I have litigated and tried cases in California, Texas and Washington. Before launching my own law firm, I was a partner with a national trial firm.


 


My firm is focused on providing individuals and business clients with personalized and outstanding legal representation.  Roughly 90% of our work involves litigated matters in the areas of personal injury, general business law / litigation and criminal defense.


 


On non-contingency cases, the Firm offers competitive hourly rates and where appropriate, fixed/flat fees and blended rates.


 


Part of my business related practice includes an outside general counsel service for small and medium size business clients who have a frequent need for legal assistance and guidance but don’t have the desire or means to hire an in house attorney on a full-time basis.


 


Regardless of the case, we provide customized legal services that are reasonably priced, efficient and sophisticated for every client.
