I have been practicing law in the Los Angeles area and surrounding Southern California counties for over 33 years. I have the highest rating in legal abilities and ethical standards. I am fluent in English and Spanish. My rates are reasonable. My business hours are extremely flexible. My practice areas are criminal defense, family law, personal injury, civil litigation, real estate, and trials. I am a people's lawyer. I have represented national celebrities, actors, directors, singers, musicians, moms, dads, and individuals in trouble. I have also represented a number of businesses with their litigation issues.
I am proud to be a lawyer and in a position to help shape the future of people's lives.
I consider myself to be a no non-sense, practical person. My client's interests and protection are first and foremost. I try to protect my clients from themselves, others and unnecessary attorney bills. An ounce of preventive legal action can prevent litigation. An ounce of common sense and practicality can minimize the cost of litigation.
As an attorney, if I protect my clients well and at the same time save them emotional distress and money, my interests will be served as well. I am a hard working attorney. I believe that good luck is a residue of hard work and artful preparation of any case.
I believe the judicial system works. Truth and justice usually prevail at the end. The above does not mean that you must pay an arm and leg for legal services. I encourage meetings, mediation, arbitration and other avenues to shortcut the process and resolve the disputes, if at all possible. However, if unsuccessful, I am a formidable opponent at trial. I am a tiger in the courtroom.
I handle all types of criminal cases, including murder, felonies, burglaries, white collar crimes, narcotic offenses, domestic violence, DUI, assault and battery, and just about anything else.
In family law cases, I handle divorces, child custody disputes, child custody mediations, property division, collection of alimony, restraining orders, contempt proceedings, Orders to Show Cause, and much more.
In personal injury cases, I handle severe injury cases resulting from auto vs. auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, bicycle accidents, auto vs. train collisions, premises liability disputes and just about all litigation related thereto. I also handle real estate disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, collection cases, business disputes and much more.
I do not handle cases I am not equipped to handle. If I can't help you, I’ll help you locate the right attorney for you.
