I have been an attorney for over 12 years. I have over 10 years of experience in employment law, business/corporate litigation and consulting. I have litigated multiple jury trials to successful conclusions. In the 8th grade when I began my school's mock trial program I knew I wanted to be a lawyer. My undergraduate degree was earned at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo where I studied Political Science in order to position myself for law school. I attended Southwestern University School of Law here in Los Angeles where I received awards for trial advocacy, exceptional grades and I graduated with honors. I began practicing in 2006 and by 2007 I began to hone my skills in employment law. In 2008 I began practicing business litigation. I truly love my job. I advocate my client's matters with zeal and professionalism. If you retain me I will do the same for you. My rates and billable hours are fair and my skills are valuable. I am a Los Angeles native and have spent my entire career in the Los Angeles area. My firm is small and you will deal directly with me throughout your case. My office is in downtown L.A. but I usually visit my clients at their place of business. I find that learning the culture of my clients' business is a great way to determine how to proceed with their matter. I practice throughout Los Angeles and Orange Counties.
