During law school I interned as a certified law clerk at the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office for one year where I assisted in felony arraignments, argued bail reductions, and OR releases. I conducted Preliminary Hearing cross-examinations and assisted Deputy Public Defenders in preparing for felony trials. I tried a VC23109(c) bench trial which resulted in an acquittal.
I have worked within the field of law for over eight years focusing in family law and criminal defense. In 2012, I started my private practice focusing primarily on family law. I have settled complex cases and zealously represented clients with custody, support, property division, and judgment enforcement issues. I have defended clients against restraining orders and have been successful at having these dismissed. I am a mediator for the Thomas Jefferson School of Law Mediation Pilot Program. The program is comprised of a panel of mediators. The Probate Court refers Guardianship and Conservatorship cases in need of mediation to the program. I am currently a part of a team of attorneys litigating two nationwide, large scale cases. One case is being litigated in the United States District Court, Southern District of California and the other in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, Central Division.
