Personal Note

My father's service as a Peace Officer instilled in me at a very young age a desire to prevent fraud and hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions. This desire was further solidified during my tenure as a Law Clerk at the office of the District Attorney. This passion for truth and justice has never gone away. As a defense attorney in the workers' compensation system, I believe the prevention of fraud and unfairness to be one of my greatest responsibilities.

After having been born and raised in Southern California, I relocated to the northern part of the Golden State shortly after the new year. My family and I are presently enjoying the terra and firma of Shasta County.
