About me

Thank you for contacting me.  I have practiced law since 1992.  From that year to 1995 I practiced civil law, helping poor rural persons with housing, education, and labor issues.  I found that work very rewarding, but I wanted more courtroom action, so I started practicing criminal defense in 1995 here in the Inland Empire.  I don't regret the change.  Criminal defense is a very exciting area of law practice that allows me to be in court on a daily basis.  Being in court everyday throughout the Inland Empire has afforded me the opportunity to meet and get to know the judges and district attorneys in all the surrounding court houses.  I have worked very hard to learn their personalities and quirks.  My intelligent and aggressive style has earned me the respect of judges, district attorneys and colleagues.  Please contact me if you have a criminal case.  My initial consultation is free.
