About Me

I believe that good representation in any type of criminal case requires a lawyer with a broad background and experience defending heavy felony cases where the client’s freedom, or even life, has been at stake. From the first case I handled as a San Francisco defense attorney, I realized that communication and cooperation between attorney and client are indispensable in getting the best outcome of the case.


 


A client’s satisfaction is based on he or she knowing that everything that can be done for the client’s case is being done.  This is the kind of experience that I will bring to your case as your defense lawyer in San Francisco, the Bay Area courts, and the courts of any of the outlying areas of Northern California.


 


I am a former Deputy Attorney General (Criminal Division) and former Special Prosecutor, and I now represent clients who have been accused of a crime.
I have personally defended over 3,500 criminal cases, including “Three Strikes”, heavy felonies, misdemeanors, and over 1,000 DUI cases.


 


When you’ve been arrested it can be the beginning of a frightening journey through the criminal justice system.  To get the best outcome of your case, you need an experienced, aggressive criminal attorney as early as possible for your case. I handle each case personally, and promise the best possible defense.
