About me

My passion is helping people through one of the toughest times in their lives through compassion, understanding, and excellent representation.

I grew up in the small Northern California town of Turlock with my parents and one younger sister. It was there that strong values and a tireless work ethic were instilled in me.

I attended college at University of California, San Diego, one of the top public schools in the country. I graduated with a degree in political science before attending San Diego's California Western School of Law on a scholarship.

I know live in San Marcos, California with my beautiful wife Emily, our son Jacob, and our yellow lab, George.
