Most people go through their lives never needing a lawyer until they are getting divorced. Family law attorneys are lawyers for every man and woman in every walk of life and it is natural for me to be able to relate to these common problems that are experienced by everyone.
It is a great idea for clients to educate themselves on legal issues. It's a form of being an educated consumer of legal services.
I am available on an hourly basis at my hourly rate.
Prior to my legal career, I worked as an Assistant Dean for the College of Extended Studies, San Diego State University.
I have a law degree and a doctorate. In my educational career and after 18 years of practicing, I have been able to overcome challenging situations which have made me more sensitive to the challenges that others face in their every day life.
I can be aggressive when necessary, but at the same time work hard to settle cases whenever possible.
I communicate with the client; that is the top priority. I make an effort to return all calls the same day and I listen to the client's wishes and always try to respond accordingly.
I play golf and bridge and I enjoy movies and theater.
