About me

I have been defending people accused of Misdemeanors and Felonies in the Orange County area since the day I passed the bar back in 2004.  I have successfully handled cases ranging from DUI's to Drug Sales, Gang Cases, Theft, Juvenile Matters, Major White Collar Cases, Rape, Murder and everything in between.

 If you have been arrested, or if you have a legal question give me a call at 949 748 6993 and see how I can help you.
