I am an Echo Park attorney.  Choose the right lawyer you can trust and who is a part of your community.  As a lawyer, I provide quality legal services to working people and owners of small businesses. Many people work hard to achieve financial success and may occasionally need an experienced attorney to protect their legal interest. Business contracts, joint ventures, consumer transactions, family law, tenancy, home ownership, wills and estate planning are part of the legal services I provide.

I bring to the table experienced legal representation to achieve successful outcomes for my clients. I have over 25 years of legal experience to assist you with complex legal issues. Partnership agreements and other joint venture business proposals require thorough legal analysis before executing. Recent California mortgage laws have been enacted to protect the legal rights of homeowners. Same-sex marriages are legal in all 50 states. California same-sex couples who made their estate plans prior to the United States Supreme Court decisions in 2013 and 2015 may need to review their plans in light of these decisions.

I have lived in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles for over 30 years. My volunteer community involvement includes being a founding member of the Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council (GEPENC) and the first elected president.

Thank you for your trust and your business.
