About me

I obtained my Juris Doctorate degree from Western State University College of Law. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice from Cal. State Fullerton. I also minored in Speech Communication.

I enjoy staying active and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I used to play baseball at Cal Sate Fullerton, and am a competitor at heart. I enjoy the opportunity to represent clients both in and out of court. Negotiating a fair settlement for my clients is a top priority!

I welcome the opportunity to serve current and potential clients. I truly appreciate that you are taking the time to review my profile. Searching for a lawyer to represent your case is a daunting process. I am here to help make that process easier.

I am a Former Deputy District Attorney and Deputy Public Defender. I am a trial attorney with excellent negotiation skills. If your case can't be settled out of court, I will litigate the legal issues inside a courtroom.
