About me

I am honored to have received many awards throughout my career including having been selected by California Lawyer Magazine as "One of the Top Twenty Lawyers in the State of California," the Outstanding Prosecutor for the State of California in 1998 for having amassed a trial record of 64 wins - 0 losses trying high publicity murder cases during my carrer and most recently in 2014 having been selected as "The Best Lawyer in Orange County" by Orange County Weekly Magazine, who noted that the success I am able to obtain in the courtroom is the result of years of hard work and the practical experience I bring to each and every case I handle in defending my clients. 


I understand those retaining my services want someone who will keep in close communication with them, fashion a reasonable fee for high quality legal service, and above all has the skill and determination to fight whatever battles are necessary to insure a successful outcome.


If you are looking for a proven attorney who will be comitted to helping you, I am available any time to answer your questions and will certainly do whatever possible to work out a financial arrangement you can live with.  I would consider it a honor to represent you on any criminal charges you may be facing.
