About Me

I focus my practice primarily on Family Law matters in Santa Clara, San Benito, and Santa Cruz county.  My goal is to give my clients the best legal advice, try to resolve their case by reaching a fair settlement with the opposing side, and being prepared to aggressively advocate for their interests if the matter proceeds to Court to be litigated. 

My firm also offers Estate Planning and Probate services.


Please give us a call to schedule a Free 1 Hour Consultation to discuss your legal matter.
