I am a So-Cal lawyer and martial arts instructor and student.
I am a founding partner of a Southern California law firm which focuses primarily on litigation, including high stakes litigation. I handle cases in all state courts in Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura counties. I am also licensed to practice in federal district court, and have litigated criminal and civil cases in the Central (OC/LA) and Southern Districts (San Diego).
My civil litigation practice includes representing plaintiffs in personal injury, employment, fraud, wrongful death, and other matters. The personal injury part of my practice focuses on cases arising from auto accidents, trucking accidents, DUI accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Other civil matters I handle include employment matters, complex fraud matters, business formation services, business representation, and business consulting.
In my criminal defense practice I represent people accused of all sorts of criminal conduct. I believe it is my job to get my client the best outcome possible on the facts that are given to me. I have a passion for criminal law and have successfully helped countless people facing long odds in criminal court. My undergraduate degree was in criminal justice and I particularly enjoy litigating criminal defense matters. I treat my clients like they are one of my close friends, and they always know I am working hard for them.
I have been training in martial arts for more than 25 years, and I am as passionate about martial arts now as I have ever been. I have had the privilege and the honor to train with world class instructors and students. I approach martial arts with an open mind, ready to learn new things every day.
