I graduated from Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco, CA. While attending school, I was a Senior Editor of the Golden Gate Law and Social Justice Journal. I furthered my legal education by clerking for several judges in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Francisco, including Commissioner Slabach, the Honorable Judge Warren, the Honorable Judge Quidachay and the Honorable Judge Kahn. These law school experiences were invaluable, as many lawyers never get the opportunity to work with a Judge and see the experience from a different perspective.
I primarily represent clients in personal injury matters and employment law and California Labor Code violations. I have worked on a variety of employment cases and personal injury cases. The personal injury cases I handle include dog bites, car accidents, hit and run accidents, bicyclist accidents, bicycle accidents when the bicyclist was "doored" by a negligent driver, and many others.
I have also handled wage and hour cases, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual orientation discrimination, age discrimination and other employment law matters.
I take pleasure in helping my clients maneuver through, what sometimes could be considered, a confusing and overwhelming legal system. Over the course of my career, I achieved results for my clients through negotiated settlements, as well as taking matters all the way to jury trials. Every situation is different, be it a car accident or employment harassment, and a different perspective is applied to each case to determine what the best course of action could be. However, either way, I am equally comfortable discussing your matter with an opposing adjuster at an insurance company or in front of a judge and a jury.
One of the most satisfying days I can have is a day where I can see justice served for one of my clients. I genuinely enjoy my practice and being able to help individuals who need legal assistance.
