About me


   Born in Washington, DC, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Biology with a Concentration in Marine Science from Boston University, a Masters in Business Administration with an emphasis in Global Business Management from the University of Phoenix, and a Juris Doctor from Thomas Jefferson School of Law. My law school honors include Dean's List and Honor Roll, The National Dean's List, and Pro Bono Honors recognition for donating more than 80 hours to public service. Additionally, I was initiated a member of Phi Alpha Delta Law Society and was graduated with an Advanced Certificate in Global Legal Studies.


   Prior to opening my own firm, I was an Associate Attorney in a Civil Litigation Defense firm specializing in Law and Motion practice, Toxic Torts, Government, and Corporate matters, handling all aspects of a case from intake, to case research, pleadings and motions, to trial work.  I have also served as a Staff Attorney to the Superior Court, County of San Diego where I advised litigants on substantive and procedural law in the California Small Claims system.


   I am admitted to practice law in the State of California, and have been admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Central and Southern Districts of California and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. I have also been admitted to practice law as a Solicitor in England and Wales.  Further, I am an active member of the American Bar Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and the American Society of International Law.


   My personal interests include SCUBA diving, rock climbing, and nature photography.
