When you have only one legal matter it can often be overwhelming and life changing. It is, however, not unusual for people to have more than one legal matter at the same time. For example, when divorce, domestic violence, and criminal matters arise at the same time or when an alleged criminal act also produces a civil lawsuit. When such occurs, it is more legally efficient and cost-effective for you to have one experienced attorney represent you in all the matters.

Our Areas of Practice

As a licensed attorney since 1984, I have been zealously advocating for clients and their rights always focusing on helping clients resolve their legal matters. My main practice areas are:

Family Law

As an experienced attorney in family law I know divorce is difficult emotionally and financially for my clients and their children. I work with my clients to minimize these difficulties and achieve the best result.

If you or someone you love is charged with a crime, it is important to retain an attorney who is experienced defending clients charged with crimes and who zealously advocates for their rights. In my 40 years of practicing criminal defense in Bay Area courts I have helped many clients obtain favorable outcomes against criminal charges. My clients know I will work tirelessly to protect their rights.

Civil Matters

In any area of your life you can experience legal disputes between you and another person or an organization. There are various approaches to resolving these disputes. Sometimes, it is necessary to litigate the matters to achieve good results for my clients. It is, however, often possible to negotiate and achieve a good resolution. In my practice, I seek to help clients find the best alternatives to achieve the best result.
