MY MISSION

To be a dynamic, client-focused attorney and advocate who is recognized for excellence by creating measurable value through successfully meeting clients’ legal needs with exceptional dependability, integrity, and fearless advocacy.


IMPROVING OUR COMMUNITY

“In both cases, he combined skills and passion to help these clients to maintain their self sufficiency and dignity.” SDLVP

I actively volunteer for the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program (SDVLP), a non-profit organization that provides legal services at no charge for the community’s most vulnerable members: abused women, children, and the elderly. The organization also protects veterans and homeless persons. If you or someone you love should need my assistance but be unable to afford my services, please contact SDVLP at 619.235.5656 or www.sdvlp.org.

 


CLIENT FOCUS

I started my law career as a Los Angeles business lawyer in business litigation. I started my law career with too many clients and needed a secretary, paralegal, and other lawyers to help me. After several years, I learned that supervising lawyers, managing people, and needing more office space required me to raise my fee. More importantly, I discovered that the effect of growing a business was taking me away from the clients I wanted to help.


I was an insurance defense lawyer at the international law firm Bremer Whyte et. al. There, I handled high value cases where I represented insurance companies, California government entities, school district, large businesses, and shopping mall owners.


Now, I am focused on individuals who hired me to help, my performance, and the difference made to my clients’ quality of life. I invite you to read my clients’ testimonials.
