35
Years Experience
AS A TRIAL LAWYER

Uniquely Qualified To Protect Your Interests

Uniquely Qualified To Protect Your Interests

I have litigated and negotiated thousands of divorces. For 15 years I was called upon as a judge pro tem (temporary judge) in the family law courts of San Bernardino County. For over 10 years I held the contract to advocate for minor children in custody cases in the Rancho Cucamonga courts. These experiences give me a unique perspective, enabling me to more fully understand the legal issues at play and how the judge will view your case.

I am familiar with every stage of the legal process, from filing the initial paperwork to appealing family court rulings. I will help you develop a sound strategy and choose your battles to protect what is most important.
