I've been practicing law for over thirty years. During that time I've done business and transactional work as well as jury trials, bench trials, and mediations. Currently my practice focuses on dispute resolution of all types, including divorce. I take my clients' problems personally, and I'm determined to win for them.

My first taste of the law in action came during an internship at a blue chip Wall Street law firm called Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy. My first full time job as a lawyer was in Atlanta, Georgia, with what is now Alston & Bird, an international mega-firm. They were formative experiences, teaching me how to be a first class attorney and act professionally and aggressively at the same time.

My work as an attorney began in business and secured lending, primarily renegotiations (called "work outs") of real esate development loans gone sour in a falling economy. Next came litigation over what was then the country's largest bank failure, defending directors of the bank against the FDIC. That lead to general civil litigation, much of it involving real estate and construction, more bank defense work, business bankruptcy, and finally family law.

Following that, I became an "in house" attorney for a large publicly held home builder headquartered in Beverly Hills, where I handled disputes with the company's subcontractors and supervised some of the largest and best law firms in Los Angeles as they handled lawsuits against the company and conducted our labor negotiations. From there it was back to the East Coast, making secured bank loans to businesses and doing something new, "private placements" of securities. My broad knowledge in many areas of the law is invaluable in attacking your problems successfully.

I've also served as a Director of the Bar Association of Northern San Diego County, for which I regularly arbitrate attorney-client fee disputes. I belong as well to the San Diego Bar Association and The Honorable Fiorenzo V. Lopardo Chapter of the American Inns of Court. I've had Certified Mediator Training and am a Judge Pro Tem.

Since we opened our office our client base has grown to over 10,000. Every one has had at least a free 15 minute consultation, during which we can accomplish a great deal. Please stop by our office and say hello. "How can we help you?" is the first thing you'll hear. We mean it.
