Thank you for visiting my website. I intend it to be a very brief introduction to me and my law practice, and welcome you to call and speak with me for additional information. I enjoy personal contact and prefer a phone call to communication with you on the web. I am easily reached at the office at 619-238-1111, and the phone is always answered. It includes instructions on how to page me in the event of an after-hours emergency. The office is located at 444 West C Street, Suite 210, San Diego, California 92101. I am fluent in Spanish, often represent Spanish speaking clients, and welcome your call in Spanish.
I have been an attorney for more than 33 years. During the first fifteen years of my law practice I concentrated on criminal defense cases and I continue to handle many of them. In 1986 I began accepting cases involving medical malpractice, personal injury, and business litigation. I enjoy the challenge of complex cases and those which need to be resolved through the jury trial process. I believe I particularly excel in the courtroom setting, where I have achieved many significant victories.
I am a member of the National Lawyers Guild, California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, California State and San Diego County Bar Associations, the Association of Business Trial Lawyers, and several other similar legal organizations. I now hold or have held office in several such associations and received many awards over the years for my trial work and public service. I will be happy to send you my full resume upon request.
I am admitted to practice before all of the state and federal courts in California, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
I am fortunate to work with a wonderful support staff. My assistant, Mary Elena Joslyn, has worked with me for more than 21 years, and will probably be the first person you speak with when you call the office. She is also fluent in Spanish. In addition, I have a wonderful paralegal/investigator on staff, as well as an information technology specialist who manages the extensive evidence and documentation I analyze in many of my cases.
In 2001, I began working closely with the Law Offices of Todd A. Moore. Todd is a fine attorney who was admitted to the bar that year, and he frequently assists me and my clients.
Perhaps the best way to describe my law practice is by saying that I accept very few cases, they are usually complex and quite challenging. I focus on and pay a great deal of attention to detail. Over the years I've found that to be a wonderful recipe for winning.
Please give me a call if you would like additional information.
