Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
Two close friends were divorcing. It was contentious and expensive. I was retained for settlement purposes only as the attorneys for both sides could not agree on the time of day. The judge refused to continue negotiations unless I was in the conference. The parties were able to reach a settlement, ending contentious litigation, saving tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

How did you build a successful practice?
My practice is almost exclusively based on word of mouth referrals. Positive results, reasonable fees and listening to clients concerns, addressing those concerns and helping find compromise when possible and fighting like hell when required.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients generally have no idea which attorney to hire, relying on referrals or the phone book. Clients that find me also find access to my network of attorneys that I know personally, have worked with and that have earned respect and the trust and confidence that allows me to associate them into my cases or make a simple referral.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge , knowing the predilections of judges, opposing counsel and even the clerks and other court room officers makes a big difference when negotiating or navigating the system.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
Usually, if the client calls as soon as a problem presents itself we can implement damage control quickly and far less expensively than litigation.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
When a client calls I like the short version first, I can flesh out the details with questions directed at details I need to identify and solve the problem.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
There are many good lawyers in my geographical area and in the areas I practice, but my special gift is saving clients money, identifying both problems and solutions quickly and letting the client know it's not their problem now, it's mine and that together we are going to solve it in an expeditious manner in a way that not only makes sense economically but saves face and often friendships and business relationships.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
When clients call to thank me for my caring manner and the extra time and effort, often at no additional charge. that made the difference in getting the job done.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I am very involved in charity work, I support Pencils for Kids, the LA Kings Cystic Fibrosis Charity. I photograph their annual event. I support the Al Wooten Center in S Central Los Angeles, for underprivileged inner-city youth, the Jr Blind Foundation, the Autistic Youth League, Kids with Downs Syndrome just to name some of the organizations I work with every year and have since I was in college.

Are you involved in your community?
In my community I have been involved since high school in beach clean up on Earth Day, worked with Heal the Bay, the American Oceans Campaign, Scripts Institute on Ocean Issues, the Surf-rider Foundation, Oceana and Jacques Cousteau's efforts to preserve our oceans. I am the attorney for Ships to Reefs, a group dedicated to building artificial reefs in California. I am past chairman of the Marian del Rey Youth Fishing Program, a past Board of Director, and currently a youth fishing mentor and attorney for the youth fishing program. I help run the Marina del Rey Halibut Derby now in its 38th year which funds the Scripts White Sea Bass Grow Out Pens in Marina del Rey, and the youth fishing program taking 600 inner city kids fishing every summer. I am the twice past president of the Marina del Rey Christmas Boat Parade.
