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.
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" .
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:
"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's commitment and brilliance is clearly communicated in his TED Talk presentation @ https://www.ted.com/talks/bryan_stevenson_we_need_to_talk_about_an_injustice, and his book "Just Mercy" and the movie.
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'.
