About me

Practicing criminal defense in the Los Angeles, Orange County, and Inland Empire areas I represent and defend many good people every single day who are facing tough criminal charges. Why?  Because I know what it is like to be falsely accused.  I know what it is like to be stereotyped and harassed by the police.


Growing up in Southern California, and spending a lot of time at the beach, I was frequently contacted by the police.  Whether I was pulled over in my car, or approached on the boardwalk in San Diego, police officers seemed to want to stop and ask me questions, fishing for evidence of criminal activity.


Fortunately, nothing ever became of those contacts.  However, it did leave me with a lasting impression of police officers, the amount of power they have over us, and how I felt when confronted by them.


I attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and was fortunate to receive a full tuition scholarship.  Courses involving criminal procedure, evidence, and constitutional rights immediately appealed to me.  I finished up law school, passed the bar in 1999, and began my career as a criminal defense attorney serving the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Riverside, and Orange County areas.


Whether your case involves a misdemeanor DUI, or a violent strike felony, I will aggressively attact the prosecution's case in order to achieve the best possible results.  This is achieved by diligently handling your case; thoroughly reviewing your police report; contacting important witnesses; obtaining copies of video and audio statements/ and or surveillance tapes; researching case law that supports your position; and contacting the District Attorney's Office to discuss charges being dropped or reduced.  Ultimately, positive results come from hard work.
