About Me

Former New York City Prosecutor Will Defend You. 

When I graduated law school in 1998, I began working for the Kings County District Attorney’s Office (that is Brooklyn).  I worked there for six years on a wide range of cases.  They included petty crime to large scale narcotics investigations involving extensive violence and gang activity. 

When I left the District Attorney’s Office, I represented physicians throughout New York City, Long Island and Westchester County.  These were medical malpractice cases where the doctors were being sued. 

Though it paid much more, I did not enjoy my four years in civil litigation.  All that I did was for the ‘money’ – my client was an insurance company, my boss wanted a set number of billable hours each month, and the plaintiffs’ attorneys only wanted a large settlement.  I missed criminal law.  I missed working for an individual’s interests.  I wanted to focue on that again so, when I returned to southern California, I decided to focus on criminal law. 

If you have been arrested, call me.  I will fight for you.
