I have practiced law for over 35 years, primarily in the civil courts and, for the past 15 years, specializing in representation of employers.
I am proud to count as my mentors some of the most skilled and accomplished litigators of their time. My earlier litigation experience was in securing constitutional freedoms and, indeed, the very survival of the churches of Scientology in the 1980s and 90s.
Along the way, I have also helped establish several non-religious social service groups now thriving and expanding to bring improved conditions in important sectors. This includes Narconon International, a leading drug rehabilitation organization, and Applied Scholastics International, fighting illiteracy worldwide.
Since 2005, I have devoted a substantial amount of my time pro bono as Director for International Development, Youth for Human Rights International. Along with a dedicated group of young African community leaders, we have created the African Human Rights Leadership Campaign, now in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Togo, and Ethiopia. Since 2010, we have expanded the initiative to the "developed world," with a successful, ongoing pilot with Pasadena public high school students. The Campaign trains youth in leadership skills through teams competing to create and deliver effective public awareness programs on selected human rights issues and abuses.
Professionally, my firm is dedicated to helping businesses develop strong workplace legal basics for sound growth. Our legal services include educational steps, effective counseling on positive resolution of disputes, and result-oriented litigation defense.
Our Sourthern California office is in "Old Pasadena," overlooking the Tournament of Roses' annual parade route along Colorado Boulevard (the famous Route 66).
By consistent delivery of quality legal services, we continue to enjoy steady expansion regardless of any transitory or prevailing economic trends.

Tim and I were partners in a law firm in the early 1990's. Since that time he has built an extensive practice in representing employers, both defending them against claims and assisting them to prevent claims through proper procedures and practices. I am now working as Of Counsel to his firm. Tim consistently cares about the clients he is representing and works towards results that will be best for their interests. His extensive knowledge in the area of employment law is a major plus for the clients who hire him and can be sure they are getting excellent representation and advice in resolving disputes and setting up their companies correctly in order to avoid having problems. I highly recommend him to any employer who needs help in employment law matters.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tim for at least 10 years. When I was in-house counsel for a start-up company, I consulted with Tim on a variety of personnel-related matters to excellent result. We have since worked together on many legal matters and I am continually impressed with his knowledge, thoroughness and results-oriented approach. I recommend him for any employment law matters.
