About me

I was born and raised in the Inland Empire.  I have been practicing since 2002 and opened my general practice in 2005 in Rancho Cucamonga.  I emphasize my practice in the areas of family law, civil litigation (plaintiff/defense) and criminal defense.  Please don't hesitate to contact me at 909-635-2023 for a free consultation to discuss your legal issues. 


Clearly, no one calls an attorney because things are going well.  However, there is always something that can be done to improve the situation and it is imperative to be proactive.  If you have legal questions, please give me a call.  It may not be what you want to hear, but the information will be honest, straightforward and what you need to know.

    I had the pleasure of speaking with James at a legal function not long ago. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the law and equally important, a caring advocate for his clients. I certainly endorse this lawyer.
