I will do my best to resolve your case as quickly, inexpensively, and amicably as possible. Through competent, caring, and empathetic representation, as aggressive as necessary, I will keep you fully informed and in control of every step of the process. Reasonable rates. U.C. Berkeley (Boalt Hall) Law graduate.

My service to you includes providing the most cost effective alternatives to resolving your case or situation. In some matters, I act as the mediator for two parties who would like my help to resolve their case by agreement. In other situations, I provide full legal representation for one party, including being his or her attorney for court proceedings. I also provide legal counsel and advice to people who wish to file and resolve their cases themselves, who need assistance in beginning, negotiating, preparing for court and completing their cases. My guidance and support for an affordable, successful divorce or other legal proceeding gives my clients more financial flexibility during these difficult economic times.

My offices are conveniently located in Alameda and San Rafael, and evening and weekend appointments are available.  Visa and MasterCard are accepted.

I invite you to telephone my offices anytime, including on the weekends, at: 510.521.9500 or 415 482.7800, for a free initial telephone consultation or to schedule an appointment.
