About me


My wife and I started our family when we were very young, having my first child at age 19. While working full time and raising a family I attended college and law school. I was the underdog and was able to persevere. I studied hard and passed the California Bar on the first attempt. Many do pass on their first attempt – but not while raising children and working full time.



My point is that I take my life skills and use them in my law practice. I fight for every client like I was fighting for myself. My life experience puts me in a position to relate to jurors and tell your side of the story to them.



There is no gimmicks here – just a dedicated fighter not afraid of the jury or opposing counsel.

  • John Kevin Hinely

    I had the opportunity to be seated in court, waiting for my client's case to be called, when I observed Tai in action. This attorney is remarkable!! Despite the judge shutting him down (wrongly) Tai continued forward with his superb knowledge of the applicable law. I would have no problem hiring Tai as my own attorney.
