About me

I have been a long time resident of Southern California's Inland Empire.  My law practice focuses on helping people and businesses in the Inland Empire. 


My family and I returned to Rancho Cucamonga after spending seven years in Provo, Utah attending undergraduate and law school at BYU.  I have been extremely glad to be a resident of Rancho Cucamonga and have enjoyed my associations with community members.  These associations have brought great joy to my life.


I enjoy playing basketball, skiing and working out.  But more importantly, I enjoy spending time with my kids, coaching soccer and serving those in need.
