I practiced as a Deputy Public Defender in Riverside County, California for three years where I left with a winning trial record; and later as a Deputy Public Defender for Mendocino County. I now practice in the San Francisco Bay Area. My principal practice area is criminal defense with an emphasis on immigration consequences of criminal charges. I also consult, to a lesser degree, in immigration and family law. Additionally, I am a law professor teaching Criminal Law, Trial Practice, Family Law, and Professional Responsibility (legal ethics) for the California School of Law. I look forward to fighting for your rights.
Licensed since 2006
Ray and I were attorneys together at the Riverside County Public Defender's office in Indio. Ray is an extremely dedicated attorney who fights to the end for his clients. He is knowledgeable and thorough, and a dedicated advocate.
