About Me


I have exclusively practiced CRIMINAL DEFENSE for 25 years. I began my career as a Deputy Public Defender supervising a DUI court and working in the Major Crimes Unit. 

During the years that I worked as an Attorney for the County in the Sacramento and Los Angeles area, I represented adults and juveniles charged with misdemeanor and felony offenses such as theft, domestic violence, assault, drugs, DUI, vehicular manslaughter and hit and run cases. 

In 1997 I opened my own practice specializing in Criminal Defense with an emphasis in DUI's and DMV proceedings. Over the years I also spent time contracting with firms working exclusively DUI's and related administrative proceedings. 

My practice continues to focus on those adults and juveniles charged with Criminal or DUI offenses in court and at the DMV. My clients are guaranteed that I will personally handle all aspects of their case and will always have easy access and constant communication with me.
