Prior to going to law school, I got into computer consulting, focusing on Internet technologies and web programming. I started contracting with Documentum (purchased by EMC in 2003) and gained experience with document management, specifically web content management. Despite my love for computers, I decided to leave consulting and go into law. So, in 2002, I left Documentum to go to law school.
Upon graduating from law school, I became a deputy public defender, quickly gaining real-world experience to back up the skills I had built in law school by successfully competing in mock trial and moot court. I was able to quickly hone my courtroom skills by representing criminal defendants at all stages of the criminal process, winning nearly 2/3 of all my jury trials. (Past performance is no guarantee of the outcome of your case.) For over a year, I was also accepting cases appointed to me by the California Court of Appeals to represent indigent criminal defendants in their California appeals, gaining valuable insight into the areas of trial and legal representation that can cause clients the most problems in court.
Now that I am in private practice, if you are ever charged with a crime or need a civil trial attorney, my experience in pre-trial negotiations, motion practice, jury selection, trials, and appeals will be invaluable. Contact me to discuss your legal situation and find out how I can help.
