Firm Overview

CRIMINAL AND DUI DEFENSE
When your freedom is on the line, you need the best representation you can afford, no exceptions. I have over seven years experience as a District Attorney and know what counts when it comes to defending you. This is the core of my practice.

BUSINESS LAW
Whether you need advice on best business practices, incorporation, non-profit formation, wage and hour law, OSHA compliance, or a host of other issues, I am here to serve your needs.

FAMILY LAW
Dealing with divorce and child custody issues can be extremely stressful. I have substantial experience in family law in both California and Florida. I seek to minimize conflict while seeking the most favorable outcome for you.

ESTATE PLANNING
While online wills and estate plans may seem like an attractive option, they may not be what your family needs when the time comes. There is no substitute for solid legal documents drafted specifically for you.

PERSONAL INJURY
Traffic accidents, slips-and-falls, product defects... they can all leave you injured through no fault of your own. Let me help you ensure your rights are protected and you are fairly compensated.

MOTORCYCLING
With over 25 years and 300,000 miles of personal riding experience, I am able to understand legal issues related to motorcycling in ways most attorneys can't. Whether it's personal injury, criminal defense, insurance claims, or any other motorcycle related issue, call me.

VETERANS ISSUES
I am a combat veteran with over 16 years of service with the United States Navy and Marine Corps. I have dealt extensively with the VA system. I will put my experience with the military and the VA to work for you. If you've served, you deserve to be treated with dignity.
