As an attorney, I am whole-heartedly dedicated to serving clients by giving each case the personalized care and attention to detail that they deserve. If I am unable to handle your case personally, I will not accept it. I am available to speak on the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In the past, I have served clients in nearly every county in California, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside County. Additionally, I have practiced criminal defense pro hac vice in Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Hawaii. I am also a Judge pro tem.

For my bachelor's degree, I attended St. Peter's College, a university located in Jersey City, New Jersey. I pursued my legal education right here in Southern California at the University of West Los Angeles.

Do not hesitate to call my office - your initial consultation is free. Any information that you share with me is held in confidence under the attorney-client relationship. The final outcome of your case depends in large measure on the actions you take immediately following the arrest, and I urge you to contact me now to begin working on the case.
