Qualified / testified as an Expert Witness on Forensic Toxiclogy multiple times at the DMV Admin Per Se Hearings
Taught MCLE Unit course at Fresno County Public Defenders Office
As a Criminal Defense attorney and expert witness i have been very pleased with the resutls of my efforts. I have embraced the education and hard work that is required to excell in my profession. The results and recognition of my peers and the relevant society have followed.
I was raised in rural Fresno County. The small town of Caruthers was home to me, and I learned hard work as a young child, even working on the family farm, picking grapes, and cutting firewood as a child. Those work ethics helped me become successful, and taught me that if I didn't want to do hard physical labor for low pay, I had better get an education. My father valued education, teaching at Laton H.S., Reedley H.S., and Hanford H.S. through his over three decades in education. His work ethic and belief in education as a key to success was passed down to me.
I worked various jobs during the time I was gaining my eduation. I leanred management skills while working as an MT in Selma California at Enterprise Rent a Car. The management philosophy of making sure a customer was 100% satisfied is a philosophy I embrace today. Selma, California is a small city that I still frequent. The citizens, eating establishments such as Cattlement as Spike & Rail along with Sal's Mexican Cuisine are among my favorite.
During bar study I spent an extensive amount of time in Fowler, even working with an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney who had his office in Fowler, Ca for many years. I frequented the Fowler, Ca Starbucks for my later study sessions, and still visit Fowler starbucks on a regular basis for my early morning reading, studying for my courses in Forensic Toxiclogy, coffee, and cheese / fruit plates. The path toward being one of the most extensively edcuation attorneys in the state is built with hard work, effort, desire, and education.
I knew before I ever began law school that being the best Criminal Defense / DUI Defense Attorney in the valley, and serving the Fresno, Fowler, Selma, Kingsburg, Caruthers, Reedley, Clovis, Dinuba area communities was a goal of mine.
I plan to complete my M.S. in Forensic Toxiclogy in June. I will also be attending a DUI-Drug course at Axion Labs in Chicago (April) along with a second GC for alcohol in blood course (June), which will allow me to test to become the 7th ACS-LD Lawyer Scientist in California. I plan to test while in Chicago following completion of the GC Blood Alcohol course. I look forward to this achievement.
I also plan to attend an ARIDE course on DRE's, which will help round out my DUID knowledge and expertise. I will make these things happen, and continue on my goal to be the best DUI Criminal Defense Attorney.
