About me

I grew up in Bakersfield, went away for college, law school, and the first couple of years of my practice, and then returned to raise a family and develop my career.  Bakersfield is home for me.  The people of Bakersfield are rich in work ethic, self-reliance, and sense of family and community.  These qualities are what have attracted me to devoting my practice to employment litigation and counseling—working with and representing business owners and managers with whom I share the same values.
