I graduated with honors from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California. Since graduating in 1994, I have handled personal injury cases since I became an attorney in 1994. The cases I have handled in the past that I am the most proud of are the ones which have resulted in change for the public good, such as employment cases where the defendant has changed policy to the benefit of the employees, and injury cases where the defendant adopts a new safety policy as a result of my client’s case.
I am a member of the Sacramento Bar Association, the Capital City Trial Lawyers Association, and the Consumer Attorneys of California (State Trial Lawyers Association). I have served on my church parish’s pastoral council, my kids’ schools Advisory Commission, and I am currently a member of the school facility subcommittee on safety. I like to support youth programs. I coached a competitive girls’ soccer team for several years, and I am a certified soccer and futsal referee. My brother and I founded the Elk Grove Futsal Club, a non-profit indoor youth soccer league, which has provided an indoor-style youth soccer program to children in the Sacramento area on a non-profit basis during the winter season since 2006.
