Firm Overview

I am a solo practitioner who has been in practice since 1986, combining a large firm pedigree with the personalized service that comes with a smaller firm practice. The first half of my career was spent at two large downtown San Francisco international law firms, Graham & James (now Squire Dempsey) and Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal. The second half of my career has been spent in solo practice.

I have practiced in a wide variety of substantive areas, including real estate and land use, insurance coverage and bad faith (insurer and insured), first party insurance coverage and fraud investigations (SIU), employment discrimination and wrongful termination, professional negligence, wrongful death, personal injury and probate litigation.
