I am a former police officer and deputy district attorney in Contra Costa County. I received my Bachelor's Degree from California State University Sacramento and later went on to law school at John F. Kennedy University. As principal attorney, I guide the firm’s staff and manage major cases and matters on behalf of individual and business clients.I have tried numerous cases to verdict and have appeared before the California Court of Appeal, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal.
Our firm primarily focuses on business litigation with a strong concentration of assisting small businesses with wage and hour claims. Other focus areas our firm works on are wills & trusts, severance agreements, real estate law and unlawful detainers. I previously represented the California Pawnbrokers Association (CAPA) in both civil matters and in crafting legislation concerning California pawn and secondhand dealer law. He litigated and prevailed on behalf of former Los Angeles Police Department officers in the seminal training reimbursement case entitled, I re Acknowledgment Cases, (2015) 239 Cal.App.4th 1498.
When not working with staff or clients, I enjoy spending time with my two German Shepherd Dogs, Ranger and Savannah and volunteering my time with local German Shepherd rescues.
