I was born and raised in the California Central Valley. Since 2000, I have been protecting the rights of the criminally accused throughout Fresno County. For approximately eight years I was a Deputy District Attorney in Fresno and served as the President of the Fresno County Prosecutors Association. During my time with the District Attorney’s office I gained invaluable insight into how both sides of the courtroom operate. Prosecuting everything from misdemeanor offenses to felonies, I was assigned to a special group that handled repeat DUI offenders and those facing DUI charges that ended in injury or wrongful death. I prosecuted over 200 felony DUI cases and now have the strategies necessary to know how the other side thinks when trying to convict an individual. Focusing 100% of my efforts towards criminal law and litigation, there is no case too complex for me and my team to handle. Recently, I was included in the list of Northern California’s Super Lawyers® Rising StarsSM in 2009, 2010 and 2012. This is an honor bestowed on less than 2.5% of lawyers in the entire state. Additionally, after qualifying under various requirements by the State Bar of California, demonstrating legal experience and passing examinations, I have become certified as a Criminal Law Specialist. My dedication to my clients goes above and beyond what is expected. If you should choose to work with me as your Fresno criminal defense lawyer, I will strive to do everything in power to provide you with a positive case result.
