About me

I started my legal career in 2001 by providing consultation to lawyers handling medical malpractice cases.  In an attempt to enhance the quality of the consulting business, I attended Quinnipiac law school in 2002.  After my first class in tort law, I knew that this what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.  I transferred to Loyola Law L.A. as a full-time student. 

In 2005 I began practicing family law and I became Certified Family Law Sepcialist dedicating my entire practice to family law
