I graduated from Yale College and Yale Law School and have been licensed to practice law in California since 1984. I have over 35 years of experience as a business litigator and trial attorney. I am admitted to practice before all California State Courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Central, and Southern Districts in California, and before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the 8th and 9th Circuits. I am well-respected by my legal peers for my legal abilities and professionalism. Former clients appreciate my thorough analyses and advice, as well as my frequently positive outcomes, whether through negotiating a favorable settlement, prevailing on important court motions, trials, or arbitrations.

Efficient, Cost-Effective Legal Representation

Having worked at a large law firm and a smaller boutique law firm, I know there are costs and benefits to having a team of attorneys working on your case. A major benefit to having a team is getting different ideas and perspectives about how to handle the case. And some cases need a team because they generate more work than a single attorney can realistically manage. A major cost is having multiple attorneys reviewing the same documents and case law. Clients often complain about costs when multiple attorneys appear to be billing for the same tasks. Working with just one attorney to resolve your legal dispute often results in leaner invoices. Without the staff and overhead costs of a large law firm, I can carve away unnecessary billing. Clients appreciate that about my law firm.
