25 years of criminal law experience/former prosecutor. I’ll fight aggressively in court for you!
I have been a criminal law practitioner for nearly 25 years. The vast majority of those years have been spent as a state court prosecutor in both Alameda and Santa Clara Counties. My specialty as a prosecutor was high profile, complex felony prosecutions. Among the many homicides I've tried to verdict was the prosecution of three men for the murder of a transgender teenager named Gwen Araujo. That case was eventually the subject of a Lifetime Network movie, "A Girl Like Me."
I have now launched my own criminal defense practice. I've done so in order to bring my experience to work for those accused of criminal wrongdoing. The criminal justice system is a complex labyrinth not easily navigated by those unfamiliar with it. If you are accused of a crime, you need an experienced advocate to fight to protect and defend your rights. I am here to do just that. The criminal justice system rarely sees the individual. It tends to group people into categories for easier processing. To that end, it tends to treat those accused of criminal wrongdoing as if they are defined by the accusation leveled against them. I represent people, not categories. You deserve representation tailored to your unique, individual circumstances. I am here to provide you with individual represenation. And I will fight for you, the individual.
