Trial Experience You Can Count On

Over the years I've had the opportunity to litigate a number of different cases for a variety of both major and minor criminal offenses. As a seasoned trial attorney with a record of success in Long Beach, I have extensive experience overseeing cases with both jury and bench trials, arbitration, and have become an expert in the field of administering standardized field sobriety tests. In addition to representing clients, I'm an active member on a number of different state and city criminal justice associations, including the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, the California Public Defenders Association, and the California DUI Lawyers Association, among many others.

At the end of the day, I love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to help people when they often don't have anyone else to provide them with the experienced legal counsel and emotional support they need during extremely difficult times. I believe that everyone, regardless of what they're up against, has the right to a strong defense. I'm proud to offer my knowledge and expertise to the wonderful people of my community, and I'm committed to doing everything I can to ensure that the rights of my clients are protected throughout the process.
