I'm a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor with a Bay Area law practice focused on drug and alcohol related offenses (possession, sales, DUI, other crimes while under the influence, etc.). I represent accused defendants in cases that range from misdemeanor to murder and have extensive courtroom and jury trial experience. In all cases, I work to find the best solutions through pragmatic strategies that have proven to be the most effective with prosecutors, judges, and juries. I accept clients throughout the Bay Area, subject to availability, and have offices in San Mateo and Contra Costa counties. I also offer one-of-a-kind legal virtual consulting across California for DIY individuals considering representing themselves without a lawyer in court (known as "pro per" defendants) to save thousands of dollars. In certain cases, it can be a smart move—there are some unique advantages. But I'll be straightforward with you if I think it's a bad idea in your case, plus may be able help you find a quality lawyer in your local courthouse.
SSDI Appeals are handled on a contingency basis, meaning you pay NOTHING unless I win your case. For criminal defense clients, you get fair and transparent pricing upfront, low jury trial rates (to not deter you from going to trial if that's what you want), no-interest payment plan options, and no surprise bills at the end of the case. I run an efficient boutique office, avoid unnecessary costs (like expensive advertising campaigns) and thus keep your fees low.
