About me

Super Lawyer for the last three years with an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell in 2012.  I specialize in family law focusing on collaborative, mediation, and if all else fails litigation.

I teach family law at DeAnza College in Cupertino and I have been a pro-tem in the Santa Clara County Superior Court Family Court Division for at least 15 years.
