About Me

My office is  based in Grass Valley, California.  I specialize in business, real estate, municipal and environmental law matters.  I graduated from Yale Univ. with a bachelor’s degree in economics.  I was admitted to the California State Bar in 1976 and have been practicing law ever since; first as Deputy County Counsel for the County of Nevada, then as a senior partner in a law firm, and now as a sole practitioner.  I have been involved in several community organizations, including the Grass Valley Rotary, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation, Miners Family Health Clinic and Community Players of Nevada County.
