My Past Experience as a Criminal Attorney
Over 35 Years Practicing Law
I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley Law School in 1983 and have been practicing law ever since. For 15 years, I served the public through the United Farm Worker’s Union, Legal Aid Society of San Diego and the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office. Since 1987, I have been practicing criminal law exclusively. As a public defender, I tried many murders and a death penalty case, and eventually became the second person in charge in the Vista office as the Assistant Supervising Public Defender.
I believe in America’s criminal justice system and the ideal that every person deserves the chance to fight the charges brought against them. I thoroughly review and edit all of the content in my blog, which has been ranked within the top 50 criminal law blogs on Feedburner for over 3 years.
My Private Practice Offices
I opened my private practice in Vista back in 1998, offering criminal defense services for adults and juveniles. Over my 22 years as a Vista defense lawyer working in a solo practice, I maintained this same office, serving Oceanside, San Marcos, Escondido, Fallbrook, Rancho Bernardo and the rest of North County.
My San Diego criminal law office in Carmel Valley, serves Del Mar, Solana Beach, Mira Mesa and the rest of San Diego County. Many of my clients have been from neighboring counties in Southern California and I even represent many out-of-state clients charged with drunk driving or other crimes in California.
