About me

I am a licensed attorney focused on providing quality legal representation to the Inland Empire in the areas of real estate, personal finance, and estate planning.
Recognizing a need for dedicated consumer protection in the Inland Empire, my law partner, Ryan S. Carrigan, and I started a firm whose mission is to provide compassionate representation for our clients while addressing the wide range of financial concerns that face today’s consumer. We understand that hard times befall good people, and for this reason our attorneys provide pro bono bankruptcy assistance in addition to their law practice.  From debt to wealth, we are not just here for you, we are here with you providing personalized solutions for personal matters.

I believe that in matters of personal finance and legal affairs, one size does not fit all.  My firm has the knowledge and experience to represent clients with a wide spectrum of financial concerns and we work to create individually tailored plans to best suit each client’s specific goals.
