Since December 2001, I have been providing efficient, cost-effective and professional representation to small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs. My practice is client-focused and results-oriented and I actively communicate with my clients during all phases of representation. My focus is to resolve problems for my clients expeditiously and with minimum expense. When necessary, I aggressively represent clients in courts or before administrative bodies in Contra Costa, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Joaquin and Solano Counties.
I believe in building strong relationships with clients, who are my greatest source of referrals and repeat business. My office serves as the off-site corporate counsel for many small and medium sized businesses.
I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University and a J.D. from Golden Gate University. I worked with many non-profit organizations, including Catholic Charities, Shelter Against Violent Environments and Charis, before going back to law school. I have worked in San Ramon since 2005, before which I had my office in Fremont. I am a member of the Contra Costa County Bar Association and the San Ramon Chamber of Commerce.
I love to hike, read and write in my spare time. I am a published author of an award-winning novel in Urdu.
