PROFESSIONALISM: where speciaized expertise / grit / integrity / and heart become one

 

When the Law and Life Collide - we can help:

Discovering the good facts, explaining the less favorable and formulating a logical legal case are just the basics. 

The way your personal story is presented - is crucial to your ultimate case outcomes.

I have the personal experience, special training, and legal expertise needed to craft a portrayal that resonates with the Judge and Juror's sense of what's true, right and fair.

 

Your Case:

I limit the number of cases I accept to ensure that each of my client's needs are met.

 

My Legal Expertise and Trainings include:


summa cum laude UCLA undergraduate
• UCLA School of Law graduate, and
• 1998 Graduate of Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer's College


• CA Bar Association, ABA, and NACC certified Child Welfare Law Specialist

• National Institute of Trial Advocacy certified Trial Skills Instructor

• Past President of the CA Juvenile Court Bar Association, and

• UCLA Adjunct Professor: Graduate Seminar "Social Welfare and the Law" .


Results Matter:

Prevailing in 100's and 100's of cases against powerful obstacles and institutional agents doesn't happen by accident. And while a particular result cannot be guaranteed, I commit to accepting only the cases I believe in, and the clients I believe I can help.

And - having spent time in the trenches - I've come to know the best of local and national attorneys. When it will improve your prospects of winning a significant verdict - I team up with outstanding specialists.

 

The Importance of Fit:

In addition to hiring the legal expertise and experience your case requires, you want an attorney who invests him or her self personally.


Why? Because the advantages of stalling and low-balling and thereby denying you a fair outcome wither away once opposing counsel sees the strength of your attorney's mastery of your case.

 

Write me: Tell me your situation as you see it - providing a brief overview of your case facts and your contact information. I'll evaluate your case and together we'll explore how best to proceed.

 

COVD-19 Protocols: To date - the pandemic has infected 60+millions of Americans and claimed 800+ thousand lives. Respecting medical science and the health and well-being of staff and clients, my office has and will remain 100% covid protocol and vaccine compliant until further notice. We only work with folks who understand the importance of being vaccinated + bolstered and maintaining Covid protocols.

 

Confidential Virtual Consultation: To set up an initial virtual case conference - write me at this AVVO webpage. Provide your contact information and I'll be in touch.

 

My advocacy skills and ongoing inspirations include:

 

  • Advance trial skills work with world renown trial attorney Gerry Spence. Gerry advises that:


"Lawyers should be chosen because they can demonstrate a history rich in human traits, the ability to care, the courage to fight, the will to win, a concern for the human condition, a passion for justice, and simple uncompromising honesty."

 

  • Bryan Stevenson - Outstanding Attorney and Founder of the Equal Rights Initiative, Bryan has consistently focused on advancing the fight to uncover and address the fundamental inequities and injustices that continue to haunt America.


Bryan's commitment and brilliance is clearly communicated in his TED Talk presentation @ , and his book "Just Mercy" and the movie.

 

  • Robert Billott - is an outstanding example of the best of the legal profession, Robert has demonstrated unyielding diligence and determination: A modern David who felled a corrupt corporate Goliath. Wayne respects and at all times strives to be this kind of attorney.

Robert's courage and commitment are detailed in his book: 'Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer's Twenty-Year Battle Against Dupont', and the Major Motion Picture 'Dark Waters'.

Mr. Morrow is an expert in Juvenile law, which is rare. He has seen the ordeals that people suffer in the courts without proper counsel and is a man and attorney to be trusted with all your injury needs, including abuse, civil rights and child abuse.
