I am an estate planning and business law attorney who also acts as general counsel for a mid-size petroleum services company in Bakersfield, CA.
I was born and raised in the northern California city of Grass Valley. In 2008, I received a bachelor's degree in Philosophy from California State University Bakersfield, where I also earned All-American honors for wrestling. In 2011, I received a Juris Doctor from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, where I also earned concentrations in Business Law and Tax Law as well as the Witkin's award in Insurance Law. Based on my achievements in Law School, I became a member of the Traynor Honor Society, named in honor of the late Honorable Roger J. Traynor, former Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court.
When I am not busy at work or volunteering in the community, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two boys.
I am a member of the Kern County Bar Association.
