About Me

I started my legal career as a certified law clerk for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.  During my time at the LADA's office I argued numerous felony preliminary hearings on behalf of the State of California and also agrued opposition to motions to suppress evidence in misdemeanor proceedings.


As a Deputy City Attorney for the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office I prosecuted numerous misdemeanor cases consisting mostly of vehicle code violations such as DUI and Hit and Run.  As a prosecutor I litigated several jury trials and achieved great success in communicating effectively with juries.  


I use the skills I aquired as a prosecutor to benefit my clients in their criminal cases.  My knowledge of the criminal justice system from the prosecution's standpoint has allowed me to achieve great success in advocating for my clients. I have represented over 1,000 clients in misdemeanor cases as well as numerous felony proceedings.
