I am a trial lawyer who will help solve your dispute before trial or give you the best chance to win at trial. Aggressive yet practical. 30 years experience. My clients affectionately call me "The Hammer" because I get results. I handle all types of real estate and business disputes, including breach of contract, fraud, construction, broker, buy-sell, partnership and commercial lease disputes. I have represented many of the largest real estate development and management companies in Orange County and thoroughly understand that clients want and expect excellent service and results at a fair price. That's what I deliver. AV rated by Martindale Hubbell.
