About Me

I'm a native of the Central Valley and have lived here my entire life, apart from attending college in San Diego.  Both of my parents practiced law.  My father was a judge, and my mother was a Chief District Attorney. So it seemed a natural thing to do, having grown up around courtrooms and legal discussions.  I started my career with Barker & Associates, a private firm that served as the alternate public defenders office in Fresno, California.  Subsequently, I went to work to the Law Offices of Nicholas F. Reyes where we handled Federal and State matters as well as personal injury cases.  


 


Since 2007 I have maintained my own private practice in the area of Criminal, DUI and Personal Injury.  I have regularly taken cases to trial and have performed over 20 + jury trials and many court trials.  I have repesented many clients on charges of murder as well as serious offenses, such as robbery, sex charges and drug trafficking.  My goal is to provide the best representation for all of my clients and work as team to make sure every possible defense and avenue for success is pursued.
