About Me

ALWAYS A DEFENDER.  All of my education and experience has been directed towards helping individuals accused of crimes.  I've never been a cop or prosecutor.  I've never arrested people or argued to send people to prison.  I was Valedictorian of my graduting class at law school.  While in law school I interned with criminal attorneys for 3 years including a private firm and a public defender's office.  I served as a public defender for Ventura County and Tulare County.  I regularly provide consultation to other criminal defense lawyers throughout California and trained public defenders and private lawyers on effectively defending clients accused of a DUI.  I am qualified to administer standardized field sobriety tests after competing the IACP/NHTSA student course on DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing and understand their limitations.  When I'm not helping the innocent and wrongfully accused or helping my kids with homework I can be found sailing on the sea, shooting at the range, or brewing beer in my garage.
