My Approach

Your Personal Lifetime Lawyer

The way I see it, there are three different types of lawyers out there — good lawyers, great lawyers, and personal lifetime lawyers. A good lawyer knows the law. A great lawyer understands your personal, economic, and business situation and gives you honest, candid counsel. And your personal lifetime lawyer gives you counsel not just about the law, but also about what is the best strategy and choice for your unique situation.

If a lawyer doesn’t understand you — your family, your individual interests, and your business — then all the law in the universe won’t give you the result that’s best for you.

As your personal Ventura attorney, I practice in the legal areas you need most, and for matters that I don’t handle, I team up with excellent local attorneys who do. This ensures that you receive the highest possible quality of service. Even in situations where my clients know I don’t practice a certain area of the law, I want them to feel comfortable calling me to find the resources they need.

Before we can reach that point, though, we must establish a relationship built on trust, clear and honest advice, and a focus on cost-efficient service. You’ll be surprised at how much I can help you, as your personal lifetime attorney.

All Clients Are Welcome

It’s normal for a big business to have a full-time attorney on staff to manage all of its legal matters. This close connection between the attorney and the company gives the business a level of service that families and small businesses can have a hard time duplicating.

However, there are times when families and individuals — real people — need their own personal lawyer. Someone who is there to guide them past the legal challenges of everyday life. Someone with the knowledge and tools to advise them on choosing legal specialists or experts, as necessary, to achieve their goals or simply protect their interests.

That’s where I come in. I want to take the mystery out of your situation and provide you with the legal support you need. I want to be your lifetime lawyer. 

"We all need a little help moving forward sometimes. It’s my pleasure to provide that help to my clients."
Accessible

I’m available days, nights, and weekends (within reason). You can get in touch with me by email, phone, or text — yes, really! — for help with whatever crises or opportunities life throws at you.

Understanding

Before I was a lawyer, I was a small business owner, a marketing employee, and much more. I’ve been on both sides of legal disputes, I know exactly what you’re going through, and I’m on your side.

Experienced

My background in various professions, paired with my extensive legal knowledge, makes me uniquely capable when it comes to handling negotiations. Let’s put our heads together to get your case settled.
