About me

I enjoy my work and it gives me great satisfaction when I obtain a good result for my client.  I have personally been through a divorce situation where there were many on-going issues concerning child custody.  It was extremely difficult and emotionally trying.  I am glad to report that my two sons (who are now 19 and 23) came out of the process in good shape.  They love and respect both of their parents and I couldn't be happier with their successes in life.

I am an avid musician and have been principal saxophone with the Pomona Concert Band for many years.  I also enjoy photography, running, and reading.
