My practice, located in downtown Fresno less than a block from the County Courthouse, is currently limited to criminal defense. I handle juvenile delinquency (e.g., violations of the criminal law) cases, including Behavioral Court, as well as adult criminal cases. I'm known as one of the people to go to if you have medical marijuana, or gang issues, in your case. However, I handle all types of criminal cases.
I practice in both state and federal courts in Fresno County, Kings County, Tulare County, and Madera County primarily. I also occasionally travel to other counties, and have handled cases in Mariposa County, San Luis Obispo County, and Merced County. I am admitted to practice in both the federal Eastern and Northern District Courts in California.
I have done a significant amount of appellate work, including state and federal appeals and writs. My writ work has primarily included writs of mandamus/prohibition with or without requests for stays, and writs of habeas corpus.
My offices are located on the sixth floor of the Patterson Building, in downtown Fresno.
