About me

Both a trusted guide and accomplished lawyer in the areas of civil litigation, real estate, family and corporate law, my team and I are thorough, analytical, and highly responsive. When considering a case, an honest assessment is provided. More to the point, my legal team and I go to great lengths to ensure there's a valid dispute or issue before proceeding with a client's precious time and resources. It's about integrity, insight and performance.

Without question, I know what it takes to see a case through the often arduous labyrinth of the legal system. I first pursue all the options of negotiation and mediation prior to litigation, pursuing the optimum resolution on behalf of her clients. Further, through building of relationships with other attorneys and other professionals I creates a network of competent legal counsel to meet the needs of my clients.

I am a highly visible member of the desert business community wherein I seek to enhance the quality of life for business, youth and the causes close to my heart. I am a professional whose commitment to both my clients and community is profound.
