I offer a wealth of general counsel experience, broad public agency law knowledge, timely responsiveness, and the ability to provide the full range of public agency services that may be required. I am service oriented, creative in finding solutions, and proactive in serving clients to minimize legal costs.

My experience includes serving as in-house City Attorney for the City of Fresno for more than 10 years.  Currently I serve as contract City Attorney for the Cities of Kerman and San Joaquin; General Counsel to the Selma-Kingsburg-Fowler County Sanitation District and  the Oversight Board to the Successor Agency for the City of Santa Clara Redevelopment Agency; and special counsel to various public agencies.  My special counsel work is broad.  It has included work place investigations, school district reorganizations, a Brown Act investigation, written legal opinions, election matters, legal advisor in administrative hearings, and  representation of  Oversight Boards to Successor Agencies involving the S.F. Forty Niners and the Oakland A’s.

In sum, I hold a strong public service passion.

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?
