My name is on this firm. As such it is my charter to manage the firm’s caseload to insure and allow us to deliver the best for our clients. We all take pride in never being outworked by the opposition and always being at least one step ahead. Intelligent focused effort breeds success and active partnerships with our clients bring litigation to resolution as swiftly as possible.

My family owned and operated a manufacturing & distribution business in Southern California for over 50 years. We grew from a small operation to $50 Million in sales before selling in 1996. This experience provides insight into business problems and solutions that are extremely rare in the legal profession.

Clients tell me that my business experience makes the difference.
