About

Passion. Diligence. Integrity.

I have lived in the bay area my entire life, and am proud to offer my services to my neighbors from throughout the region.  I graduated from Santa Clara University in 2005 and spent two years working in residential construction and as a political opposition researcher before attending Santa Clara University School of Law.  

While in law school, I interned with the Santa Clara County Public Defender and with the United States Court of the Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Office of Staff Attorneys.  I also worked as a research assistant to my constitutional law processor.  

After graduation, I served as a Research Fellow at Santa Clara University School of Law and as a volunteer research attorney with the San Mateo County Superior Court. 

I opened my office in 2012.  I have mostly practiced in criminal courts, but I have also worked on a variety of civil litigation matters and have appeared in family courts for various purposes.  I am honored to be an active member of the San Mateo County Private Defender Panel.  In that capacity, I am appointed to represent individuals  accused of various misdemeanor and felony offenses. 

Over the years, I have represented hundreds of individuals who were accused of crimes.  I have collaborated with some of the finest attorneys in the Bay Area.
