About me

I came to Bakersfield in 1985 because my wife and I wanted to raise our family in a smaller community that shared the same values as we did. Also, I wanted to work in a community large enough to offer a wide range of interesting and challenging legal work. In the years since I came to Bakersfield, I realize that I have been blessed with all that I sought when I came here, and much more. I have had (and continue to enjoy) the distinct pleasure of working with some of the finest attorneys in practice.
