About Me

I am proud to continue a family tradition that began back in 1933 of helping injured persons recover from the carelessness and negligence of others. We assess each client's individual needs, and aggressively seek an adequate award by preparing the case for trial from day one.


My firm represents clients in a wide array of personal injury cases from automobile collisions to injuries caused by dangerous products and dangerous conditions on property. We believe that an award is adequate only when it makes our client whole. We strive to recover everything our clients may be entitled to, and have successfully obtained over $1,000,000,000.00 in verdicts and judgments for our clients.


We have recently expanded our firm to help people deal with the banks trying to take their homes and unscrupulous debt collectors. I was awarded the prestigious Housing Justice Award by the San Francisco Bar Association for my volunteer efforts in helping people stay in their homes.
