About the Attorney
You Can Trust in My Experience
My life has been dedicated to learning how to be successful as a criminal defense lawyer. I studied Public Administration at Cal State Fresno and graduated Summa Cum Laude. I attended McGeorge School of Law (UOP) and finished in the top seven percent of my class while also winning a top student award in criminal law. While studying, I obtained valuable on-hands experience by working for the California Office of the Attorney General, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the Madera County Office of the District Attorney.
Following my law school success, I began working for a civil law firm, McCormick, Barstow, Sheppard Wayte and Carruth of Fresno. I was soon hired by the Sacramento County Office of the District Attorney where I was employed for several years as a Deputy District Attorney. While working for the DA, I gained a track record of success in prosecuting a wide variety of crimes such as White Collar Crimes, Attempted Murder, Sexual Offenses such as Child Molestation, Drug Possession and Sales, Robberies and Burglaries,
and DUIs among others. I also prosecuted several Three Strikes cases.
After gaining this experience as a prosecutor, I decided to use my talents to defend persons unjustly accused of crimes by the government. My time as a criminal defense attorney has been spent successfully defending criminal defendants and protecting the liberties of people accused of serious offenses such as: gun related offenses, drug crimes, three strikes offenses, armed robberies, embezzlement, and sex related crimes. I have also dedicated a portion of my practice to assisting California's professionals, such as nurses and pharmacists, to preserve their licensing status and professional reputations in the face of serious work related and outside allegations of misconduct. You can trust in me to be an effective advocate for your case.
I have numerous positive client reviews, an excellent rating on the Lawyer Rating Service Avvo, and I was recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine as a Rising Star in Criminal Law. If you need help in a criminal matter or a professional licensing defense case, don't hesitate to contact me at any time to discuss your options.
