About Me

My practice concentrates on all Driving Under the Influence cases that occur in Monterey and Santa Cruz County. After handling a case load of 200 cases as a Deputy Public Defender, at one time, I decided to open a law practice that focuses on the individuals goals and concerns. Driving Under the Influence cases are unique, and are decided on a case by case analysis.  If you need a FREE CONSULTATION, please call us at either (831) 269-3780 or (831) 621-7344.
