I am a Santa Clara native and currently recognized as one of the most effective litigators in Santa Clara County through an independent survey of judges and attorneys conducted by “San Jose Magazine”. Some of my past clients include people who are most familiar with the workings of the court. I have represented superior court judges, court clerks, district attorneys and police personnel on numerous occasions. I have a very diverse client base that come from all walks of life. I find equal satisfaction in obtaining justice for the unemployed laborer and the wealthy business owner. I have successfully defended numerous public officials in high profile cases.
I have had over 35 years experience in the criminal justice system: 14 years as a police officer and police sergeant where my assignments included everything from SWAT to Narcotics. I also has over 20 years law practice in civil, criminal federal and state courts. I have successfully defended 1st degree murder cases in state courts and successfully prosecuted complex civil rights violations in federal court. I have participated in over 200 jury and court trials.
