I represent adults charged with misdemeanors and/or felonies in all types of criminal proceedings from arraignment through trial and sentencing. After law school, I spent five years in the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s Office and have been in private practice for the past twelve years. During these seventeen years as a criminal defense lawyer, I have handled thousands of adult cases of all types from drunk driving, battery and domestic violence matters to the most serious felony cases charged under California’s Three Strikes Law.

I spend a great deal of time prior to the first court appearance meeting with each client, preparing his/her case and developing a logical, coherent strategy for obtaining the most favorable resolution to the case. I believe in representing each client as I would want to be represented. Accordingly, I devote a maximum amount of attention, energy and resources to each client’s case, whether it is a simple traffic-related misdemeanor or a felony prosecution which could result in a life sentence in prison. I keep in close contact with all of my clients and return all telephone calls promptly. I do not charge for initial consultations and would be happy to discuss your case with you at your convenience.

I handle adult criminal matters in all Bay Area counties and cities, including but not limited to the following: Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, Atherton, Belmont, Burlingame, Los Altos, Los Gatos, Menlo Park, Pacifica, Palo Alto, Portola Valley, Redwood City, San Jose, San Mateo and Stanford.
