Practice/Organization Description

I believe my primary duty as an advocate for my clients is to search for the truth and shape my advocacy around the truth. I do not subscribe to the popular style of advocacy that shapes the "truth" around my client's position. I believe there is a power that comes with advocacy that seeks the truth first.

Learning about new areas of law and business is a love of mine and keeps me going. Some of the business/legal topics I have studied extensively include IUPAC/CIP stereochemistry nomenclature, Lanham Act false advertising, California Finance Lenders' Law, nutritional supplement law, special education law, distribution agreements, unfair competition, insurance bad faith, fiduciary duty, franchise finance, non-profit government contracts, agency, partnership, commissions, underwriting, fraud, civil rights.

Results include $16.3 million jury verdict, $10 million jury verdict, $7.75 million settlement (after a two-month jury trial), $1.2 million binding arbitration award, $750k jury verdict and many jury trial defense verdicts when the claims against my client were multi-million dollars.

Admitted to practice before state and federal courts in the state of California. Admitted pro hac vice in Southern District of New York and Eastern District of Texas.
