About me

     I am a second career attorney (college professor previously) who went to law school after dealing with the trials and tribulations of adopting a child (who is now a happy and well adjusted adult). 

      I entered law school with the specific goal of working in the juvenile dependency court system, representing parents whose children have been removed from them.  80% of my practice is in juvenile dependency and I work in Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.

     The other areas of my practice include Family Law (including military divorces), conservatorships, guardianships, adoptions (including adults), juvenile criminal law and prenups.

     I am a sole practicioner who keeps my rates low so that even the most modest income client will be able to afford my services.


All consultations are free.
