I believe that excellent legal representation is not exclusive; effective representation shouldn’t be limited to persons of a certain status. People from every and all walks of life can find themselves in need of representation by focused and experienced legal counsel. My firm is committed to providing this for the people in Fresno, the entire Central Valley and throughout the state of California.


When I began studying law over 36 years ago, I immediately felt a strong interest toward Criminal Law, and specifically Criminal Defense. I understand that other areas of the law may yield a bigger paycheck, but I realized that that wasn’t everything. Early on it became readily apparent to me just how dire the need was for excellent representation for people accused of criminal conduct, especially in today’s “pro-law enforcement" society. I believe that above all, nothing is more important than your freedom and protecting your constitutional rights! That is why I have spent decades committed to protecting my clients and their rights. I have implemented specialized legal techniques, expanded my network of legal resources, and developed an unprecedented level of quality service for my clients.

Being accused of a crime can be excruciatingly stressful, it carries with it the possibility of going to jail, paying large fines and having a criminal record. But a criminal prosecution can have a far greater impact on your life than just what happens in the criminal court — it can have a huge effect on your work, employment opportunities, and your future. All persons need quality representation, at an affordable price. Don’t settle for anything less.
