I am a Founding Partner at Sylvester Oppenheim & Linde with over 40 years of experience. I provide skilled and knowledgeable representation to individuals and businesses with Business, Labor, Employment, Insurance, and Public Entity Law matters. My extensive experience includes jury and non-jury trials in both state and federal courts. I am committed to insuring the best service and legal representation. I am dedicated to outworking the opposition, staying one step ahead, and bringing your litigation to resolution as quickly as possible.

In 1975, I received my B.A., cum laude, from UCLA. I earned my J.D. from Loyola Law School in 1977. I am a member of the California State Bar, Los Angeles County Bar Association, National Council of School Attorneys, and California Council of School Attorneys.

Additionally, I bring personal business experience to my legal representation. My family owned and managed a California manufacturing & distribution business for more than 50 years. It grew from a small company to having 50 million dollars in sales before being sold. My personal and family business experience has provided unique insight into business problems and legal solutions. Clients tell me this makes all the difference.
