About Me

For fun and health, I like to practice traditional Brazilian jiu-jitsu.  I started training with Carley Gracie in San Francisco while a student at Stanford Law School.  Once I got my bar card, I got extremely busy, and took a long hiatus.  

Nowadays, I roll at West County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Sebastopol. I am happy to be a blue belt.

    In the years that I have been associated professionally with Omar, I have benefited immensely from his vast knowledge and experience in the area of medical marijuana criminal defense on both the state and federal levels. In defending cases alongside mar I have found him to be unwavering in his commitment to his clients' desired results, a posture which I have seen pay off many times over.

  • Heather Lynne Burke

    Omar has a passion for criminal defense unparalleled by many other lawyers. I had a unique opportunity to learn from Omar by working in his office for a few years and I was able to see how deeply committed he is to cannabis and counter-culture criminal defense. He is the real deal. And even more than his dedication to his clients, he is a brilliant and Indefatigable defender, constantly thinking up new strategies to help his clients. This is a human you want on your team.
