About me

I graduated with a Juris Doctor degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M University School of Law) in Fort Worth.  After spending my final semester as a visiting student of the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law, I remained in the Sacramento area where I began working for the highly-esteemed Chastaine Law Office in Folsom, California. As an associate attorney, I practiced criminal defense and personal injury law with Michael Chastaine, a prominent Northern California trial attorney. I also became a Central California Appellate Project (CCAP) panel attorney, appointed by the Courts of Appeal for the Third and Fifth Districts to represent people on appeal who have been convicted of felony offenses. In the summer of 2013, I moved to beautiful Santa Rosa, California, and opened my own law practice, focusing on criminal defense—both trials and appeals—and personal injury litigation. And in 2014, the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) accredited me to advocate for veterans who are seeking the benefits they have earned through their service to our country.
