My firm is focused on providing individuals and business clients with personalized and outstanding legal representation. Roughly 90% of our work involves litigated matters in the areas of personal injury, general business law / litigation and criminal defense.
My business related practice includes an outside general counsel service for small and medium size business clients who have a frequent need for legal assistance and guidance but don’t have the desire or means to hire an in house attorney on a full-time basis.
I have over 18 years of broad practice experience spanning multiple states. I have litigated and tried cases in California, Texas and Washington. Before launching my own law firm, I was a partner with a national trial firm.
The Firm offers competitive hourly rates and where appropriate, fixed/flat fees and blended rates. We also work under contingency arrangements on personal injury and selected business litigation matters. Regardless of the case, we provide customized legal services that are reasonably priced, efficient and sophisticated for every client.
