About Me

June marked the beginning of my 45th year as a criminal defense attorney.  It seems like only yesterday that I started my career as a deputy probation officer and was going to law school at the same time.  As I look through all my many memories and experiences one feeling surpases all others--I have always loved what I do and I still do.  Helping people in trouble has always given me great satisfaction, and I think it shows in the results I have been able to achieve.  I'm especially proud of my certification as a Criminal Law Specialist by the California State Bar and having been twice selected by Los Angeles Magazine as a "Super Lawyer".
