About me

I assist clients with business disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes, complex commercial disputes, real estate disputes, contract negotiation, corporate governance issues, supplier disputes, dealer and distributor disputes, lease negotiation and disputes, and director and officer liability issues.  I have been a trial lawyer for 25 years and since 1988 have tried cases to verdict in the California Superior Court, United States District Court, and United States Tax Court.  I have also resolved many disputes by mediation and arbitration.
