Having practiced law in San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Cruz and Santa Clara Counties since 1994, my experience is quite diverse, as most of my legal career has involved a mix of consulting, transactional and litigation work. In all of these contexts, I provided sound, objective advice to my clients, along with strong client advocacy. I strive to regularly advise clients about the risks, costs and benefits of various courses of action, and to provide legal services that my clients feel are a good value.
I have interned and/or worked in the Berkeley City Attorney’s Office, the California Attorney General’s Office, the State Coastal Conservancy, and for eight years I worked in the Land Use and Government Law department of a larger San Jose law firm called Berliner Cohen. I have also worked for myself a few different times.
After that many years of practice in several different types of law office environments, I have the accrued the wisdom and experience necessary to confidently and efficiently advise clients about likely outcomes, potential risks, and various factors that cannot be controlled.
