Biography

I am an Appellate Law Specialist certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization and I spearhead my firm’s Appeals and Writs group. I have handled appeals and writs in anti-SLAPP, civil-rights, commercial-litigation, employment, ERISA, family-law, personal-injury, probate, real estate and trust cases. I have briefed and orally argued writs and appeals before all manner of appellate courts, from the California Court of Appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. I have also successfully settled multiple cases in appellate mediation. As judicial clerk for both state and federal appellate courts, I have reviewed and analyzed literally hundreds of appellate and amicus briefs. As a practitioner, I have handled over 75 different cases as lead appellate counsel. I have delivered numerous public presentations to lawyers, executives, managers, and supervisors on the topics of appellate law and best employment practices. I am admitted to practice before all courts in the State of California as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court. Prior to law school, I worked as a newspaper reporter for The Sacramento Daily Recorder and as a correspondent to other Daily Journal publications. While in Law School, I worked as a law clerk at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Hawaii. I graduated from the University of California at Davis, King Hall School of Law, with honors. Before transferring there, I attended the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. My academic ranking at McGeorge Pacific resulted in my admission to the Roger J. Traynor Honor Society.
