About Me

In Custody

I have been licensed to practice law since 1996 and have been representing juvenile clients in Sacramento, El Dorado, Placer, Amador, San Joaquin, Yolo, and Alameda counties since then. I specialize in juvenile delinquency and dependency representation. My office is centrally located in Sacramento and I can meet clients throughout Northern California.

I have represented hundreds of clients, in a wide variety of juvenile court matters. My expertise is also recognized by the Superior Court in Sacramento, which appoints me to act as a Guardian ad Litem in juvenile dependency cases where a family member is not available. The court also appoints me to advise parents in dependency matters where multiple parties are represented by one attorney and a conflict may be present.

I am currently a member of the California State Bar, the California Public Defenders Association, and the Sacramento County Indigent Defense Juvenile Panel. Before choosing law as a career, I worked as a tutor, a teaching assistant, and as a college and public school teacher. Thus I have extensive experience working with young people.

I can provide relevant advice on all aspects of your child's legal matter in delinquency or dependency court. The State Bar of California discourages attorneys from listing individual case results, but for nearly 20 years I have obtained excellent resolutions in a wide variety of cases. Call (916) 932-8531 or email today for a free consultation and to determine if I can assist you with your child's important legal matters.
