I recently joined The Buchta Law Offices after graduation from the
University of San Francisco, School of Law. During my time there, I
acquired valuable experience clerking for over two years at the
plaintiff personal injury firm of Hinton, Alfert & Sumner in Walnut
While at USF, I participated in the USF Criminal Law Clinic where
I represented indigent clients in criminal matters and successfully
achieved favorable outcomes for my clients. In addition to the Clinic,
I competed in the USF Advanced Moot Court: Advocate of the Year
Competition. I was also a staff member and survey author for the USF
Intellectual Property Law Bulletin.
Like my boss Mr. Buchta, I possess an engineering degree, having
graduated with High Honors in Mechanical Engineering from UC Santa Barbara. Additionally, I served as the
Vice President for the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi.
I particularly enjoy working directly with my clients and
helping them achieve the best possible results. I also like the
litigation process and being in the courtroom.
My competitive edge comes in part from sports; I excelled at
football and rugby in high school as well as rugby in college.
Additionally, my hard work and determination enabled me to become
an Eagle Scout and Senior Patrol Leader (the highest position) in my troop.
In my spare time I enjoy mountain biking, skiing, running, politics, and some TV.
