About me

I have handled a wide-variety of business litigation matters as an attorney and mediator. 

I specialize in sports-related legal matters.  My ongoing experience as both a business attorney and sports agent enables me to identify and understand the unique issues sports-related legal matters present and to provide valuable insight to my clients.  I have expertise in a wide-range of sports law related matters, including alternative dispute resolution, baseball arbitration,  corporation formation, contracts, employment agreements, estate planning, family law, intellectual property, NCAA/CIF Rules, publishing contracts, real estate matters, and tax matters.

I am an avid sports fan.  I have coached the Trabuco Hills High school mock trial team for the past four seasons.
