Criminal Law 

I am an experienced, professional, and dedicated criminal defense attorney and a former San Diego prosecutor who has handled numerous misdemeanor and felony cases. You can be confident that you are receiving quality legal representation. 

  • I will be an advocate for you in Superior Court and in negotiations with the prosecution. 
  • I will thoroughly investigate your case, conduct the necessary discovery, review the police reports, and ensure that the prosecution has disclosed all records and evidence. 
  • I will explain, without using legal jargon, the issues that you can expect to encounter in the legal system and recommend strategies that will strengthen your legal standing. 
  • I will complete the necessary forms and legal pleadings to advance your concerns and issues.
  • I will provide the personal attention of an experienced lawyer, not a secretary or a paralegal. 
  • I am skilled at navigating what can be a complex and confusing legal process.

Family Law 

I am also experienced in all areas of family law including divorce, child custody and child support cases. I regularly help my clients through the challenging aspects of the dissolution process. I treat each case and client as unique, and will work toward meeting your goals. In some cases, you may need me to mediate and counsel you on family law issues, or I may need to aggressively litigate and defend your rights. 

  • I will be a vigorous advocate for your case both in and out of the courtroom.
  • I will work hard to expedite your dissolution and prepare any motions and legal paperwork in an efficient and timely manner. 
  • I will listen to your needs, communicate with you, and convey your desires to the Court.
