How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I would rather help people than the government, and I like being in court.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

It can be helpful at times.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I will not assist in this, as I believe it is not a good idea in criminal cases.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I will not assist, as again, I believe it is not a good idea in criminal cases.

I have been in private practice in Placer County for about 25 years. Prior to that, I was a public defender in Placer County.

I have held many jobs; unskilled and skilled, beginning with farm labor at age 12.

I have a wealth of experience in many different types of cases.

I am aggressive when I need to be, but I am also a skillful negotiator.

Personal interests:

I enjoy work and sports.
