I am a DUI lawyer practicing in Fresno County and many of the neighboring counties such as Madera, Merced, Stanislaus, Kings and Tulare. I have dedicated my practice to the defense of person's accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. My purpose is to achieve my client's goals, i.e. winning DUI cases, winning DMV hearings, and saving driver’s licenses.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California and his law degree from San Joaquin College of Law in Fresno. I have been practicing criminal law my entire career, starting as a criminal prosecutor with the Stansilaus County Distict Attorney’s Office in 1987. Near the end of 1988, I moved back to Fresno and opened my private practice specializing in all aspects of criminal defense. I have successfully defended clients accused of murder, drugs, gang crimes and sex offenses. Over the past several years, I have limited my practice to defending people who have been charged with DUI, and DUI related crimes. I have significant trial experience and I understand the importance of announcing to the Judge and DA, "I’m ready for trial, your honor."
I am a member of, among others, the National College of DUI Defense, the California DUI Lawyers Association, the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Bar Association of Fresno County.
I have successfully completed training in both the Student and Instructor Courses for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) DUI Detection Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Program and I regularly and frequently attend conferences and training on all aspects of DUI law and practice.
