About me

I am a criminal defense attorney, with experience in civil litigation. I completed a double major in Political Sciene and Legal Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.  I went straight into law school at the UC Davis-King Hall School of Law. Since being admitted to the Bar, I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of individuals protect their rights against a system that presumes guilt rather than innocence. 

If you or someone you know has been arrested or is facing criminal charges, do not hesitate to call me at (626) 600-1439. I speak directly with each of my clients and provide free consultations.
