About me

I am an attorney with very rare credentials. In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a California Registered Architect, a Licensed General Contractor, and a real estate developer. I have been licensed as an architect for 28 years, and as a contractor for 20 years. My experience with commercial, government, and residential architecture, engineering, construction, and development is significant. Combined with 16 years of law practice, my office is quite effective in dealing with both transactional and litigation related issues in these practice areas. If you are looking for a lawyer who can parse out non-issues from substantive claims, and who can deal head-on with your case in an efficient and straightforward manner, then I would look forward to your contacting my office.
