Practice/Organization Description

I am a trial attorney and senior counsel in the San Diego office of Klinedinst PC.

I am part of the Klinedinst Professional Liability Practice Group, where I represent lawyers, accountants, and other professionals in defense of malpractice, negligence, and related claims.

I also advise and represent businesses and individuals throughout California in resolving disputes, and enforcing and defending rights in negotiation, mediation, arbitration, litigation and trials of matters involving:

(1) contracts, interference with contractual relations or prospective economic advantage, unfair competition, unfair business practices, fraud, defamation, false advertising, and breach of fiduciary duty;

(2) infringement and misappropriation of intellectual property rights, including trademarks and trade names, copyrights, patents, trade secrets, and other proprietary or confidential information;

(3) Internet-related issues, including domain names, intellectual property rights, contracts, unfair competition, advertising and privacy; and

(4) real property, including purchase/sale, commercial leases and tenancies, and eminent domain.

I have practiced civil litigation in San Diego for 21 years, and have been rated AV-Preeminent in Martindale-Hubbell's Peer Review for over ten years.
