Seasoned attorney with 25 years experience. I am a trial lawyer.

If you are going through a divorce and concerned about your rights and have only their best interests in mind, and not your own, then I am the lawyer you want in court with you.

If you have been stopped by police and charged with a crime and don't think police treated you fairly or are worried about what will happen now? Will I be able to bond out? How will this affect my job, my family, my ability to continue to work, then I am the lawyer you want in court with you.

Things happen in life that you can't predict. You need a lawyer who knows the law, knows the judges, knows the lawyers and wants only what is best for you.

Wanted to become a physician but the law became of interest to me in a freak accident where my 2 yr. old son Michael had pulled himself up onto a metal folding chair in Sunday School class and in doing so, the chair folded up on his finger, cutting it off. We rushed the lad to UC Davis Hospital where he was triaged behind those drunks who had fallen down after biting their lips etc., and I was enraged. Here was my little boy losing his finger as I struggled to hold the tip to the exposed bone, horrified watching as it dried out. At last a cart with saline went by and I grabbed it and began squirting the finger tip with saline. Ultimately he was seen and the finger was saved. However, when I wrote the LDS Church and asked if they would please remove all such sharp, folding chairs from their buildings to keep the same thing from happening again, i was poo-pooed and told that the Church is self-funded and does not have a liability policy, to which my response was "well isn't that too bad, because all I asked you to do is remove similar chairs to prevent a similar occurrence from repeating itself and all you tell me is "let us do our jobs." I was furious and vowed that day to sue the Church. It was this experience that led me to become an attorney. Too many people are victims of crimes and negligence. They are in need of an advocate. I have spent my career advocating for people.
Honors: Note Editor for the Journal of Public Health
Activities: Extensive studies into the history of the LDS Church which led me to ask to have my name removed.

Legal Answers
Q. Police harassment file a civil lawsuit and sue for damages
A: The question, the ONLY question is . . . did the officer have a "reasonable suspicion" that the driver of the car (son) had done something that the officer could give him a citation for? If the answer to that question is "yeah, the cop said my son was speeding but he never even gave him a ticket for speeding" or something like that, then you're out of luck. IF the police office could have given your son a ticket for violating ANY traffic citation, then your claim against the police will fail. Finally, prior to suing the police, you must warn the police by filing a "Tort Claim." This is jurisdictional and that means that from the day your son was pulled over, count 180 days and on the 180th day, write "LAST DATE TO FILE A TORT CLAIM." If you fail to file a Tort Claim by that 180th day, you will be UNable to every file it again, period. No excuses or exceptions to that.
Q. Why would co defendant be in a discovery but there is no co defendant in the case ?
A: My experience in dealing with prosecution offices is that the first Discovery Responses they send out are akin to a sawed off shotgun approach, they're going to list every, single human being who they talked to or originally thought they might want to talk to. It's kind of like a "place keeper." A place keeper keeps them from forgetting anyone as trial gets closer. Can you imagine being a prosecutor who only lists the individuals with whom they are focusing, and then in trial they (thinking they had already disclosed the name) call the name of someone else, and the defense stands up and says, "I object your Honor, the Government did not list that person's name in their discovery response and I object to them being able to call them!" The Court would sustain your objection and forbid the State from calling that person. The PA would lose their job because they forgot to "list everybody" as they were taught by their office when they started.
Q. I'm a felon from 25 years ago for drug possession.
A: If you are a felon, you may not possess a firearm, period. Regarding the laptop . . . what kind of computer was it? Did you pay full price for it? Did you pay a fair, used price for it? What questions did you ask the seller before buying it? Did the seller "dump" it for a hundred bucks just to get something for it? Why wouldn't this trigger your brain to say, "hmmmmm, must be stolen?!" For one thing, you probably didn't get the name of the seller, did you? You probably didn't get a receipt from the seller, did you? What were the circumstances of the sale? Was there anybody else there that could talk about all the questions you asked the seller before buying it. If not, you're probably dreaming about winning a trial! All of the answers to these questions, is probably what the prosecutor put in his Affidavit in Support of A Warrant to Search, " and took to a Magistrate Judge. Regarding the "offer" they made to you . . . if you believe a jury would acquit you after answering the above questions, then go to trial. If you believe there is a good chance a jury would ask you the same questions I asked, then take the offer and don't question whether it was a good deal or not, because grand theft carries up to 12 years in prison and some District Judges are apt to let you serve a 1/3 of it before they make you eligible to parole out.
