About Me

Caring - Dedicated - and Passionate About Achieving Justice for Our Clients


I founded my law practice with a strong sense of doing the right thing.  At my office we do this by representing people that have been hurt by the negligence, recklessness or purposeful behavior and actions of others.  Our office has always been about using our compassion and skills to help real people and their families whose lives have been severely affected as a result of the wrongful actions of others. 


As part of our commitment to our clients, we always try to respond as quickly and carefully as possible to your legal needs. We try to temper the speed of our service with the need to be thorough. We don't want just to take care of your legal needs quickly, we want to take care of them correctly in order to help you achieve the results you deserve.


My office is located in the heart of San Rafael, California.  Our address is 501 B Street, Ste. 200, San Rafael, CA 94901. 


We may also be contacted by email at and our telephones are: 1-(415)738-7901 and 1-(800)557-1293.
