About me

I am a UCLA graduate with a BA in Econcomics.  I received my law degree from 

Southwestern University in Los Angeles in 1976, and  I was admitted to the California State Bar in December 1976.  I opened my practice in El Cajon in July 1977.  My community interests include coaching soccer and little league for my children, officiating those sports as a volunteer, past memeber of the East County Advisory Board for the Red Cross, current Rotarian and President for the second time this year.
