About me

I have been practicing law in San Joaquin county for over 25 years. Before becoming an attorney, I worked in San Joaquin County law enforcement for over 15 years. I have successfully resolved thousands of cases here. I know the area, and am familiar with the legal community.

If you run into trouble on the road, whether it's a car accident, DUI, or traffic ticket, give my office a call for legal help.

I provide legal representation and services ranging from major felony criminal defense, DUI defense, misdemeanor defense, personal injury, traffic tickets, expungements, and other forms of clearing your criminal record. If I don't practice in the area of law you need, I will make sure to find a high quality attorney who can help you, free of charge.

I provide top notch legal representation, and make sure to keep my clients up to date every step of the way. I am not like some attorneys who ignore their clients.
