About Me

I have practiced law in Eureka, Humboldt County, California since being admitted to the Bar in 1976.  I received my Bachelor's degree in sociology from Stanford University in 1972.  After spending a year working for the U.S. Department of Labor I returned to Stanford to study law and received my doctor of jurisprudence degree from Stanford Law School in 1976.  My practice focuses on all aspects of criminal and juvenile law as well as related regulatory, governmental and civil rights matters.  I also accept cases in Del Norte and Trinity Counties.   I have served as a consultant to the California Continuing Education of the Bar and was a contributing author to their seminal texts on juvenile and criminal law procedure and practice.
