About me

I knew from the beginning of my legal career that my passion and talent were in legal research and writing, which led me quite naturally into my appellate practice. 

For over 25 years I have successfully prosecuted and defended appeals in all of the California Courts of Appeal, including the California Supreme Court, as well as in the Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeal and the U.S. Supreme Court. I love the creative challenge of distilling complex legal situations into clear and concise written "stories" and the intellectual challenge of finding, analyzing and presenting the legal precedents which help my clients achieve their goals, whether they are reversal of a bad decision, affirmance of a good one, or the chance for a “do-over” when the original proceeding was unfair or flawed.  

I also offer consulting and motion-drafting services to attorneys. 

I enjoy a one-to-one relationship with my clients. I personally do all the research and writing for each case and when my clients have questions, I am the person they talk to.  

I keep my rates very low compared to other attorneys with my experience because most of my clients are average working people and I understand that by the time someone gets to the appeal level, they have likely already been through several years of costly litigation.

Because my practice entails mostly research and writing and does not require me to be in court very much, I easily handle cases from all over California.

I look forward to talking with you about your matter.  Please call me for a free consultation.
