About Me

I am a graduate of Claremont McKenna College and George Washington University Law School.  I have handled over 2000 DUI cases, including DMV administrative hearings and writs appeals of erroneous DMV decisions.  I am a Contributing Editor to  "California Drunk Driving Law", often considered the "Bible of DUI Defense" in California.  I utilize DMV Hearings to not only fight to protect your driving privileges, but also to develop strategies that will work for you in the defense of your DUI case in Court.  


I have dealt with a multitude of search and seizure issues and will research and investigate your case and challenge improper police practices and faulty science through pre-trial motions and trial.  I have a strong track record of prevailing at motions to suppress and Serna Motions and am a skilled trial attorney.


Let me work with you to resolve your case with the best possible result.
