Practice areas
  1. Ethics and professional responsibility
    70%
    For most of my career, I have devoted the majority of my practice to legal-malpractice actions. I represent and consult with plaintiffs and defendants and also handle abusive-litigation actions, fee disputes, and sanctions motions. I also represent lawyers before the State Bar and assist attorneys with ethics, insurance and risk-management issues.

    23 years

  2. Litigation
    30%
    I have many years of experience in other professional-liability matters, including malpractice actions against accountants, escrow and title agents, and insurance and real-estate brokers. I've handled a wide variety of other civil-litigation cases in state and federal courts, including representation of plaintiffs and defendants in personal-injury and business litigation, policyholders and insurers in insurance-coverage actions, and various parties in contested probate matters.
