This is a general civil practice located in Petaluma, California. My practice emphasizes estate planning, trust and estate administration, probate, business transactions, contested estates and trusts, and alternative dispute resolution.

Admitted to the practice of law in 1984, I concentrate on personal representation of a diverse client base that spans the Northern San Francisco Bay Area, Telecom Valley, and the Wine Country. I handle selected cases before the State Courts and various administrative boards throughout California, but primarily Sonoma, Marin, Napa, and San Francisco counties.

I am committed to providing intelligent legal representation in which clients are treated with integrity and respect. Listening to my clients and helping them to understand a problem and to identify their goals and objectives is the cornerstone of my success in maintaining long-term productive relationships.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
