As an entrepreneur and consumer advocate, I particularly enjoy helping others navigate through the complicated legal landscape and achieve their business goals.
I am distinguishable from other lawyers in that I am a successful entrepreneur, specialized in business law while in law school, speak Japanese proficiently, and have experience mediating business disputes
Before attending law school, I co-founded a high-tech electronic test equipment company. We focused on import/export of security-sensitive equipment between universities, researchers, and certain government entities.
This lead to my emphasis on business law while in law school. Not only did I take many courses centered on the many facets of domestic and international business law, I also studied international business law in Japan.
While in Japan I was able to further hone my Japanese, which I received a BA in from UCSB. My Japanese language skills have provided me many opportunities to understand and appreciate Japanese culture and to take particular care to formality when working with Japanese clients.
These experiences have provided me with a unique and youthful insight into resolving various legal issues for businesses around the globe.
As a solo practitioner, Toeppen Law allows me to choose the cases I take. Every case I take is hand-picked by me. My main criteria is that I can do an outstanding job on the case. Other firms will go into an extensive cost/benefit analysis that short shifts many clients in my honest opinion.
Another big difference between Toeppen Law and other firms is that I am an actual person you can talk to at most times of the day. Many other lawyers are hyper-inaccessible, using their secretaries as the first line of defense against actually talking to their clients. I welcome your input and want to make sure your expectations and understandings fit the situation at hand.
