About My East Bay Law Practice

I'm a second generation native of the S. F. Bay Area. I grew up here and went to school here, obtaining my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and my law degree from the University of California, Davis, before becoming licensed to practice law in California.

In more than 45 years as an attorney, I have seen a broad spectrum of cases and resolutions — matters ranging from forcefully and extensively litigated conflicts to legal issues resolved through more collaborative methods. I have learned what it takes to avoid problems before they occur and have put those skills to work in helping people structure their agreements early on - before problems occur.  I no longer handle litigation but can assist clients in understanding their alternatives to long and costly court proceedings.

My law practice is small and focused, allowing for my clients to work directly with me, rather than being handed off to another attorney. They get advice and representation from the experienced lawyer they hired — not an inexperienced associate — and they gain the benefit of speaking directly with me when questions arise.
