I have been a divorce attorney for over twenty five years in the San Francisco Bay area.

I first opened my practice in downtown San Jose, California. I participated in many of the bar association pro bono activities and I was given several awards or recognition. I was successful in many cases ranging from false accusations of child abuse to representing a CEO of a toy company. Both cases resolved in my client's favor.

My second office was located on University Avenue in Palo Alto, California where I was situated for eight years. Here I had the privilege of working on several high net worth cases and gained expertise in stock options, executive packages, and trust issues. I was mentioned in an article in Forbes magazine in June 2000.

I relocated to Sausalito in Marin County where I opened a law office on Caledonia Street in Sausalito in 1998. I operated out of two offices for a couple of years with one located in the Silicon Valley and one located in Marin.

I provide excellent representation to my clients, and have had many successful resolution of cases. I have a graduate degree in psychology as well as a doctorate in law.

I look forward to meeting you and being of service to you with your current family law situation.
