Award winning attorney
Over 25 Years Experience
Some of my work has been featured on the San Jose Mercury News Front Page,
First office consultation is always free. Call me right now. You have nothing to lose in speaking with me. Give me a call, a text or email. If I can help, I will.
Sucessfully tried cases involving DUI, murder, rape, child molest, domestic violence as well as other types of criminal cases. I have also reached many favorable settlements on cases that did not go to trial.
I only handle criminal cases.
I know and have known many Santa Clara County judges and prosecutors for many years. I have a solid reputation in the legal community. In this business credibility counts for a lot.
No case is beyond hope. I can help a client with any kind of criminal case that a county prosecutor can charge.
I practice law in Santa Clara County (The courts in San Jose, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, and Morgan Hill).
I work very hard and I tell it straight, no gimmicks.
I also have years of experience in dealing with the mentally ill.
When I address a jury, I believe in my cause, my case and I believe the jury will do the right thing.
It is a high honor to represent someone in court and my work reflects that.
