About me

I am a Certified Family Law Specialist with over 20 years experience.  My practice is limited to family law issues to include the trial level, as well as domestic violence restraining orders, request for orders, child support, child custody and visitation, spousal support, property division and pre-marital agreements.  

I have represented parties in every facet of family law and have a proven track record of success.  Our office is here to help those needing representation in the area of family law.

I have served as Judge Pro Tem for our local courts and am a Mediator on the Riverside County Family Law Private Mediation Panel.  I am a past President of the Desert Bar Association and am currently serving on the Board of Education for Desert Sands Unified.
