About Me

I was a Law Enforcement Officer with the State of California for seven years, working my way through Undergraduate and Law School.  I provide excellent service to all of my clients and have never had a complaint against me.  I have been chosen preeminent in my field by my peers and have enjoyed this status since 1998.  My goal is to have all of my clients pleased with the outcome of their interaction with myself, my staff and their legal issue.
