Those who know me best say that I’m a problem solver by nature and an entrepreneur at heart. I started my first successful business while I was still a student, and I have continued to create and manage several others since that time. My entrepreneurial background spans from collectibles and videography to technology support and financial services. Nevertheless, I find the practice of law to be the most rewarding by far. I have a competitive spirit, and I have never been known to back away from a challenge. I cannot think of a profession that could be more satisfying than the practice of law, which allows me to utilize my inherent strengths to help others.
I have successfully represented individuals and small businesses in connection with various matters in the areas of civil litigation, business litigation, business transactions, estate litigation, elder law, probate, and conservatorships. I make an effort to understand the specific issues that each of my clients face so that I can better accomplish the specific goals of each client and resolve their matters. My personal philosophy is to provide quality personalized representation to each and every client, and to ensure that my team does the same.
Before becoming an attorney, I spent several years as a businessperson and received a Bachelors of Science (B.S.) in Business Administration/Finance, and a Masters Degree in Business Administration (M.B.A.). I received my law degree from the University of Hastings, College of the Law, where I was staff editor of the Hastings Business Law Journal, and served as a Full-Time Extern in the Complex Litigation Department of the Los Angeles Superior Court. I have found that the combination of my business background and my legal experience allows me to better anticipate and address the needs of my clients.
Outside of the firm, most of my time is spent with my family. I have a loving wife named Greer who is a first grade teacher at a local elementary school, an energetic two-year-old daughter who keeps us both on our toes. We are delighted to be expecting a new addition to our family in the coming months. During our downtime, I have been known to channel my love of competition into strategy-based games, and can even convince my wife to join me every once in a while.
