I have been a Trial Lawyer since 1987 and tried my first case before a Jury representing the victim of a motorcycle accident in 1988 in San Diego Superior Court. I obtained a substantial verdict for the client.
Since then, I continue to represent injury victims in automobile/motorcycle accidents, Falls,Defective product litigation and serious and catastrophic injury victims in personal injury cases.
I have tried cases before the Jury in almost all Counties in the State of California and particularly, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Kern, Fresno, Tulare and Alameda Counties.
My Firm is dedicated to Client relationship first and foremost. We work hard and educate clients of the process. A better educated Client is better equipped to meet Today's challenges in litigation . Our experience together with client education always give an edge for our clients to meet the challenges of court experience.
Above all I enjoy helping people in need and am always available to listen.
On a personal note I like to travel and listen to my favorite singer Andrea Bocelli.
