I was an LA County Public Defender in 1973 and also have experience working with the LA probation department. Although I have ample experience handling all different types of criminal cases, I focus on DUI and DMV problems, drug cases, theft and fraud, post-conviction relief, and administrative licensing problems. I have specialized in criminal defense cases throughout my lengthy career which spans 37 years. I was admitted into the California bar in 1972 and am licensed to practice before the US District Courts for the Central, Southern, and Eastern Districts of California. I earned my BA from UCLA in 1969 and JD from USC in 1972.
