I graduated from McGeorge School of Law in 1988 and moved to Nevada to work for the criminal defense firm of Goodman, Stein and Chesnoff. While at the Goodman firm, I was responsible for preparing all motions for clients who were assigned to me by each of the partners. This gave me significant experience in researching and preparing motions in Nevada state cases and in federal cases where the clients were usually charged with committing major drug crimes such as Continuing Criminal Enterprise, RICO and Conspiracy to Distribute Controlled Sentences in Los Angeles, California, San Diego, California and Oklahoma.
I left the Goodman firm after two years and opened my own office. I have litigated every criminal offense from trespassing to capital murder in the Nevada state court. I have litigated every criminal offense in the federal district court of Nevada from bank, mail and wire fraud, drug and weapons related offenses to capital murder.
I have also successfully helped persons with parole eligibility hearings in Nevada and I have successfully challenged criminal convictions thru state post conviction litigation.
My present practice is primarily focused on trials, appeals and post conviction challenges in the state court of Nevada. However, I am available to litigate federal criminal cases.
