I have the experience to provide you the best possible legal representation in the Ventura County Superior Court. I am a former Supervising Prosecutor and Major Crimes Attorney in the Ventura County District Attorney's Office. During my 17-year-career, I supervised the prosecution of all of the following offenses:
I have tried nearly every type of criminal case ranging from Domestic Violence to capital murder. I will put my experience to work for you!
At our initial meeting, I will listen carefully to you and explain the legal and factual issues that are likely to arise in your case. Using my experience, I will outline a strategy that is designed to give you the best possible chance for a successful outcome in court.
I am currently an Adjunct Proffessor at Pepperdine University School of Law. In addition to training law students, I have instructed countless lawyers and police officers concerning the rules of evidence, criminal procedure, criminal law and defenses to crimes.
I have an excellent reputation in the Ventura County Justice system that is based on two decades of success in front of judges and juries. Most importantly, however, I care about my clients. I want to protect and safeguard their rights, and to prevent the justice system from turning their lives upside down. I approach every case with passion and dedication.
If you or a loved one are arrested for a criminal offense in Ventura County, please don't hesitate to give me a call. I am confident that no other lawyer will take the time to thoroughly explain your case and the law in the same way that I can. I look forward to hearing from you.
