About me

I have been practicing law for over 40 years.I started as a Los Angeles Sheriff's cadet at 16 years old and worked in the Sheriff's Department in various assignments until I passed the Bar Examination in July of 1969. I went to work as a Senior Law Clerk in the District Attorney's Office in Los Angeles at 24 years old. The day after I turned 25, I was officially sworn in as a Deputy District Attorney February 2, 1970.


I have been practicing criminal law ever since. There is not a kind of a case I have not seen, supervised or handled. I have tried over 100 murders and death penalties alone. There is not a single attorney in Orange County that can match my experience.
