Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
As most of my cases are in Dependency Court, I cannot discuss them, other than to say I fight as hard as I can, because I understand the pain and trauma off having your child removed from your care, for whatever reason.

How did you build a successful practice?
My practice is predicated on serving the client. I meet with client's after hours and on weekends. I allow clients to make payments for their retainers. I also give my client's my cell phone number so they can reach me any time and I try to return all phone calls within 24 hours. Also, I do not charge my clients for travel time, nor do I charge them for the lunch time. Finally, I encourage clients to ask questions by phone, text or email, which I do not charge for, unless they are asking my legal opinion or advice.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Someone they can trust and who they know will respond to their needs honestly.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
It does not really affect my cases. There is no real winning or losing in family or dependency, there is simply obtaining the best result for your client.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
If they have the necessary information, I will happily speak with a new prospective client for up to 30 minutes and answer all questions to the best of my ability and within the framework of the law.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
In family law, just what the issues of divorce will be and in dependency, what allegations are being made, and if known, what courtroom you are assigned to.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I am a solo practioner with no office help and a modest office, all of which helps to keep my overhead low, so I can keep my fees low for my clients.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Resolving matters in a way that benefits my client, especially when I can get their children returned to them.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
I have a background in theatre and other forms of entertainment, I also am a musician, playing guitar and my wife and I love to travel.

Are you involved in your community?
Yes, I present legal lectures at the Chino State Woman's Prison, and I give other lectures to the community and other attorneys on various legal matters.
