About me

I owned and managed a title and escrow company for 18 years. During that time, I became interested in real property and decedent estate law. To further that interest, I enrolled in law school, studying 20 to 30 hours per week--all the while operating my business and engaging fully in family and community life.


I graduated as Valedictorian of my law school class and passed the California Bar on my first sitting. Since then, I opened my law practice and eventually sold the title and escrow business in order to concentrate fully on law. My experience in title and escrow makes me uniquely qualified to help solve many legal problems in the areas of real estate and decedent estates.



When not solving clients' legal problems and enjoying my family, I hike, backpack, and fish. I also enjoy listening to Bob Dylan and Grateful Dead.
