About me

My practice has focused on family law in California and Nevada since 1999, which includes family-owned business disputes.  Depending on the case, I may litigate, mediate, or arbitrate a matter to judgment or settlement.


It's important to me that my clients win by receiving the best legal advice and choosing battles very carefully.  I strive to patiently and thoroughly consult with clients regarding their most intimate issues:  marriage, careers, children and life savings. 


Located in South Pasadena, my firm usually represents clientele in Los Angeles County and the greater Southern California region; however, all California and Nevada cases are considered and competitively priced.  A confidential first consultation is $150.  Thank you for reviewing my profile.
