Personalized Legal Representation
San Diego has many attorneys, but very few offer the kind of client focused, high quality legal representation I can provide. As a true solo I am committed to providing my clients with responsive, innovative and personalized legal representation. I represent clients throughout San Diego in a variety of civil and criminal situations including:
Being involved in the civil or criminal court system is rarely something people enjoy. I understand that and do my best to make the process as simple and efficient as possible. I have experience in both the public and private sectors, giving my clients the unique advantage of being represented by an attorney who has seen the legal process from both sides.
As a former prosecutor I understand what the prosecution is looking for when they evaluate a case and I know what judges and juries respond to. In the civil arena, my experience working for the County of San Diego gave me insight the administrative process behind a wide variety of government activities. I apply both “behind the scenes” perspective to the cases I handle and use my experience to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients in all my cases.
A Different Way of Paying for Legal Representation
I believe that you should know the cost of my services from the beginning of our relationship. As a result, I offer flat fee billing in almost all of the cases I handle. If flat fee billing isn’t appropriate in your particular situation, I offer reasonable hourly rates and retainer agreements. If you’d like to learn more about my billing system please visit my DUI and criminal defense pricing pages.
If you need legal representation in a criminal or civil matter, I am here to help. I offer free, no obligation telephone and in person consultations and look forward to working with you to create the best possible response to your individual case.
