About me

I am a life long resident of the Napa Valley and grew up working in the vineyards and wineries.  I also own a small wine label.  So I have an insider's understanding of the vineyard and wine industries.  I am married to a teacher and have four children, three dogs and a couple of cats.  When not practicing law, I enjoy working on my wine and the spending time out doors, especially fly fishing.

    I recently met and worked with Rafael and found him to be a delight to work with. He is very well tied into the Napa region, and is a great choice for any estate planning needs you may have. Rafael also has an unparalleled knowledge of the wine industry making him the perfect choice for winery owners who need to plan for the future.
