About Me

Over the years I have worked on cases spanning many areas of law such as marriage dissolution issues, transferring trademarks, elder abuse, financial abuse, restraining orders, domestic violence charges, reviewing contracts, updating trusts, government-tort liability, and real estate disputes. Additionally, I have extensive experience in Criminal Law.


Experience in the legal field has taught me many important lessons. I always work to  keep my clients informed. I show my clients respect and try to explain everything in terms that are understandable. I routinely consult with clients regarding their most intimate and important issues. I advise my clients to choose their battles wisely because it is important to me that the best possible results are obtained in each individual situation.


My office is centrally located in San Diego, and I represent clients throughout the entire county.
