Summary

I have represented thousands of clients throughout the state of California. I am a member of the San Diego County Bar Association and a proud veteran of the United States Army, Reserves and the California Army National Guard.

In 1996 I graduated from the University of California with a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy, and in 1999 I received my juris doctorate from the University of California Hastings College of Law.

Early in my legal career I worked for large multi-national companies, including PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, and North American Exchange Company, a division of Lennar Homes. I have been a solo-practitioner for over 13 years representing individuals, and small to medium sized businesses throughout the greater San Diego region.

I have experience addressing client issues related to bankruptcy and insolvency, family law matters, business and corporate issues, litigation, and tax issues.

I understand and recognize people call me to resolve difficult and sensitive legal matters that are overwhelming and stressful. I am compassionate, respectful and provides each client the guidance and direction to achieve the results that matter.

I am licensed to practice throughout the state of California as well as the United State District Court and Bankruptcy Court in the Central, Northern and Southern District of California.

Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered

Q. I signed a lease for six months and want to get out in three. How do I go about that?
A: Depends on your lease and whether it has an early exit clause and/or a defect that the lease would be rendered invalid. We don’t have enough information to give more specific information- but if neither of the above exists then your best bet may be to negotiate an early exist payment.
Q. I pay child support to my ex for our daughter, she has sole physical and legal custody of her. Today the judge approved
A: In order to stop the child support garnishment you need to file for modification of child support and it will only be modified after a court order. Any modification entered after the filing of the request for modification will be retroactive to the date of filing and you will be entitled to a credit and/or reimbursement for over-payment.
Q. how may I lift a DVRO that requires me to move out of my home while the title is being contested in quiet tile case?
A: There is insufficient information to determine where you are in the DVRO process - is it a temporary restraining order pending a hearing or has a hearing been held and a restraining order after hearing been entered. If the DVRO is currently temporary then you will need to successfully defend the DVRO at the scheduled hearing, or a subsequent evidentiary hearing if you determine 20 minutes to defend against the temporary.
