About Me

My practice for the last 40+ years has been limited to civil litigation and business matters.  I specialize in all aspects of real estate and business, including transactions and litigation.  I am also a trianed mediator in disputes involving these areas of law, and participate in mediatons both privately and upon assignment by several courts in the Bay Area. In my law practice, I emphasize practicality combined with professionalism that is the result of many years of experience. Clients view me as knowledgeable, thorough, capable and accessible.  Adversaries view me as tenacious and well-prepared.  I have a small office practice which assures my clients that they only deal with me.
