Attorney Profile

I truly love my job! I am a passionate advocate for my clients, and I believe that every person charged with a crime deserves to have an attorney that they can trust. I value integrity in my representation above all else, and fight to protect my client’s federal and state constitutional rights! I have worked on everything from simple misdemeanor trials to complex death penalty cases.

I have written successful appeals and writs of mandamus with the Fifth District Court of Appeal, and petitions to the California Surpeme Court. I love the courtroom, I respect my clients, and I fight hard at all stages of the criminal proceedings. I have obtained successful jury verdicts for my clients in felony and misdemanor cases, had cases dismissed on the day of trial, and negotiated fair and reasonable plea agreements for those who wish to settle their matters outside of the courtroom.

I have been recognized as "Top 40 Under 40," by the American Trial Lawyer Association for 2018!

I have been recognized as "10 Best Criminal Lawyers," in California for 2018, by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys!

I have been recognized by the California State Bar for my Pro Bono Services in 2018!
