I went to college, Cal Poly Pomona and then to Law School, Western State COL, and I was fortunate enough to pass the California State Bar Exam the first time. I opened the door's to my office in September of 2000 and they have been open ever since.
I am a criminal defense attorney through and through. I have been practicing law for well over a decade. During that time I have helped thousands of clients resolve their matters. I have trial experience with cases ranging from Petty Theft to Special Circumstance Murder. I am a successful trial attorney with several Not Guilty's in my career.
Since losing family members to cancer, I am a strong advocate for Medical Marijuana and as such, I have a niche' in the defense of Medical Marijuana cases as well as Consulting in the area of Medical Marijauna.
