More Than Three Decades Of Experience

Before opening my own practice, I worked for many years as a district attorney in Los Angeles County. Those years as a prosecutor give me extra insight as a defense attorney today: I understand the way prosecutors build cases, areas where a case may be weak, and when they are likely to be willing to negotiate.

I use this knowledge to craft a legal strategy that can effectively counter the actions of prosecutors. From the very start of our work building your defense, I can help chart a path to a successful outcome in your case without getting unexpected surprises from the prosecution.

Victim Advocate For Marsy’s Law Cases

My decades of service as a prosecutor also allows me to work effectively as a victim advocate. I understand the stress and trauma many face in this situation and I can help protect your rights. I have experience with cases under Marsy’s Law and I can explain your rights under this law and how to deal with the criminal justice system to ensure you are not victimized a second time.

The Pursuit Of Justice

“Justice” is a complex concept. Prosecutors are obliged to see that justice is done. Sometimes, that doesn’t happen. The core pillars of the American criminal justice system are the presumption of innocence and the requirement that the state proves every element of their case.

As a defense attorney, my job is to protect the rights of the accused and question every allegation of the prosecution. I work to understand your facts and perspective and stand up for your rights in the legal process. I will use every legal tool available to help you obtain the justice you deserve.
