About me

In addition to being licensed in all courts of the State of California, I am also licensed in the following Federal courts: United States District Court Central District of California, United States District Court Southern District of California, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.


I have worked both as a litigator and transactional lawyer for some of the largest firms in the country.  Furthermore, I have served as General Counsel, Legal Director, and Assistant Vice President to Fortune 500 Companies and corporate conglomerates.


As a result of academic excellence in law school, I served as not only a member of the Whittier Law Review, but also as the Solicitations Editor. I received my Juris Doctorate Cum Laude.  In addition to being on the Honor Roll and Dean's List, I also received the Dean's Citation Award and served as President of the Whittier International Law Society.  I am also a recipient of the American Jurisprudence Award, and CALI Award of Excellence.


In addition to my stated areas of practice, I am a passionate advocate for children of all ages. As such, I am active in anti-bullying campaigns, and offer affordable, flexible, flat fee arrangements for parents who want to put an end to the bullying of their child. For those services, you can e-mail me at


I also have significiant experience in dispute resolution between neighbors and HOAs.
