About me

I have been serving the communities of Nevada, Placer, Sutter and Yuba counties and the surrounding Northern Sierra Foothill Communities since 1983. As an attorney on the staff of the Nevada County Public Defender for two decades, I learned how to provide the most aggressive representation possible while keeping in mind budgetary issues as well. Now as an Independent Attorney, I bring to my practice a dedication to providing a wide-range of legal services from investigation, negotiation, document preparation and litigation at reasonable rates, providing flexible payment options for all our clients. Our physical address is 204 N. Pine St., Nevada City, CA 95959.  For more information, please see our firm's website at
