My personal injury clients find that I combine compassionate counseling with aggressive advocacy that maximize their recoveries, whether by settlement, trial, arbitration or mediation. They appreciate the time I spend with them, the investments we make in their case, our responsiveness and, of course, maximum damage awards without any out of pocket costs for them.

My business clients appreciate the breadth of my background and dedication to client service My clients have included the Coca-Cola Company, General Motors Corporation, Federated Department Stores, and Cooper Industries. My business clients report they appreciate the dedication, responsiveness and skill brought to bear in litigating, negotiating and resolving business disputes, whether with disgruntled employees, shareholders, or vendors. I bring large firm experience and attention to detail without the large firm fees.

I have litigated cases involving catastrophic personal injuries, products liability, complex insurance coverage issues, commercial disputes, and construction defects throughout California and the United States, and secured more than $40,000,000 in judgments and settlements.

You won't see us on billboards, bus benches, or daytime or late night television. You won't hear us on the radio or see us advertising in a mailbox circular. We are not interested in building a high volume "mill" practice. We don't take every case presented to us. We carefully select our cases and limit the number of matters we take on to ensure the highest quality representation possible.

We are gratified that our cases and clients come largely from other attorneys and satisfied clients. Over the years, we have won millions of dollars in judgments and settlements for clients in personal injury and business litigation matters. We serve clients in all of Southern California, including Orange County, Los Angeles, Irvine, Santa Ana, San Diego, Laguna Niguel, Ladera Ranch, Mission Viejo, San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Woods, Laguna Hills, Coto de Caza, Las Flores, Rancho Santa Margarita, Lake Forest, Dana Point and Capistrano Beach. Call our Laguna Niguel office (949) 582-1544 or email me directly to schedule a complimentary consultation today.

I have 30 years of experience in helping people get through life's unexpected traumatic events, whether a devastating personal injury or wrongful death.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

From the very beginning, we work with our clients to develop a client-centered strategy taking into the account the client's entire life circumstance to achieve the outcome that is best for the client. We bring sophisticated legal representation previously available only to client's of larger firms to individuals and businesses in our community and we do it without charging large law firm fees.
