I have worked on a wide variety of civil cases since I was a litigation secretary (1980 to 1988) and paralegal (1988 to 1996). I've continued handling these cases as an attorney, including the Federal Civil Rights action that led to a $6.6+-million judgment (nearly $10 million once the appeals were exhausted in 2011, and appellate fees and interest added).
I am a passionate litigator and will zealously pursue a worthy cause. I look for cases that are warranted by the facts and law - and that make economic sense to pursue.
My civil litigation practice includes:
I have been handling family law since 1997. I have extensive experience helping parties through a very difficult time in their lives. You need an attorney to fight aggressively for you and your family's rights as well as provide support through the hard times.
I have 16 years appellate experience in Los Angeles and San Diego, California. I file and respond to appeals and petitions for writ (mandate, supersedeas, habeas corpus) in the California Appellate Courts.
