Overview of Practice

In my transactional practice, I draw on my 15 years of legal experience in many disciplines along with my prior professional experience, to develop proactive solutions for clients. By examining the past and present, I help the client identify potential future issues so that we can plan now, rather than merely respond later. Preventive law is both more efficient and effective, as well as more responsible. Short-term objectives and problems are folded into long-term planning. This is simply applying the old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure to the practice of law. I simply expand the horizon of possibilities to include special planning for the clients’ unique circumstances. This is true across the spectrum of my practice. I expand the horizon of possibilities to include special planning for the clients’ unique circumstances. 

  The same plays true in my litigation practice. You will hear many attorneys talk about their love of litigation. Litigation is oftentimes inefficient, ineffective, imprudent, and impulsive, so it is not something that one should venture into without careful thought and consideration. As an experienced litigation attorney, I will be able to provide you with an objective analysis of the burdens and benefits of engaging in litigation. Sometimes litigation is not in the best interests of my client and may place my client in a worse position. Other times it is the only option. My experience in litigation consistently tells me to pick my battles wisely and not make litigation choice number one in all circumstances. There are alternatives that may accomplish the same objective. 

I have extensive experience in litigating cases throughout Riverside, San Diego, Orange, Imperial, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. I presently, however, only take litigation matters in Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties. I work closely with my clients in litigated matters to set realistic expectations.
