About me

I was born in Oakland, CA. 


I attended college at the University of California, Davis. I graduated with a major in English and minors in Math and Chemistry.


I attended law school at Lincoln University.  I graduated in 1976, first in my class, with a juris doctorate and was admitted to practice in all of the California State Courts and the Federal Courts in 1976.  I was admitted to the Washington D.C. bar in 1978.


I taught Business Law at San Jose State University from 1985 through 2010.


I have practiced exclusively family law for the past twenty years.


I am a member of the State Bar of California, Santa Clara County Bar Association, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and Collaborative Practice Silicon Valley.  


I sit as a Settlement Officer Conference pro tem and/or a Settlement Conference judge pro tem once a month.


I was voted one of Silicon Valley’s Top Lawyers in 2001 - 2007 by San Jose Magazine.


I have been married for 34 years.  My wife, Suzann, is also an attorney. We have two grown children; a daughter, age 30 and a son age 28.



I jog, snow ski, mountain bike, fly fish and make my way to Napa, Tahoe, and Hawaii at least once a year.
