About Me

I have been licensed as a lawyer since being sworn in by the Fifth District Court of Appeals in Fresno, California on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 1988 and am now in my 26th year as an attorney.  In that time, I have done over 125 trials with successful wins.  I have had five published opinions.  I have had opportunities for public speaking..


Prior to being an attorney, I was a private investigator for over eleven years.  Before my legal profession, I even had another life in which I was a journeyman chef and a journeyman baker.  I was also a school instructor specializing in physical education, which I did for two years.  My hobbies are motorcycles, travel, reading and sports.  I have been married to my wife, Beth, celebrating 30 years.  Beth is an HR Manager for Adventist Health.
