About Me

I have practiced criminal defense and defended against restraining orders in San Diego County since 2004.  Since 2007 I have practiced appellate criminal defense.  I have won several jury trials over the years and have won a number of cases on appeal.  I believe I provide great service to my clients and their families.  Most important, I strive to give my clients excellent representation in the trial, family and appellate courts in San Diego County and southern California.  Please contact me for a free consultation by phone or in-person.
