My practice is statewide, covering the California Supreme Court, all of the California District Courts of Appeal, and the U.S. Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit. I am also admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court. I provide representation in nearly all types of civil cases, including business disputes, contract disputes, tort cases, real estate, environmental and land use law, government liability, family law, and probate, I am also available to represent amicus curiae parties.
In addition to handling appeals and writs, I provide consultations for potential appeals, assistance in trial proceedings where an appeal is anticipated, and other general litigation support to trial attorneys, in nearly every type of civil case. I also represent clients in trial court litigation on a limited basis. I represent individuals, businesses, associations, and public agencies.
