I am licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in California and Hawaii, and am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
I have a general civil litigation practice, and specialize in disputes related to real estate, business, and insurance rights. I represent individuals and businesses, and I am equally adept on either the plaintiff or the defense side of a case.
I have been lead counsel in a broad range of lawsuits, including contract, business, and insurance disputes, intentional tort, negligence, and malpractice cases, civil rights claims, probate contests, and administrative, immigration, tax, and local government proceedings.
I accept a limited number of criminal cases each year, and as a general rule, the cases I accept do not involve unprovoked violence or serious injuries. I provide my clients with an aggressive defense and vigorous advocacy for prison alternatives.
I have defended many types of cases, including drug and firearm offenses, money laundering, tax, and white collar crimes, theft, fraud, and embezzlement, domestic violence, and drunk driving.
I am also available for general legal consultation, such as contract negotiations, business and tax strategy, artist representation, and asset protection.
When you retain me, you will have an experienced and successful advocate, and you will have a trusted advisor. I will be accessible to you, and I will work hard to secure the best solution to your problem, whether this means negotiating a compromise or going to trial. You will benefit from my impeccable reputation for high quality legal representation, and you will find that my fees are reasonable.
