Professional Experience
Partner
Carmel & Naccasha, LLP
- Current
At Carmel & Naccasha, my practice is split between litigation and transactional matters. I represent a wide range of clients including public agencies, local corporations, and individuals in business and employment litigation, real estate transactions, and business transactions.
Senior Associate
Goldman, Magdalin & Krikes
-
I assisted GM&K in developing a civil litigation practice at its San Luis Obispo County office. Although I enjoyed my time and the firm and worked with very nice and talented people, my time at GM&K was brief because I was presented with the opportunity to help Carmel & Naccasha expand its already growing litigation practice.
Court Attorney
San Luis Obispo County Superior Court
-
At the SLO County Court, I was fortunate to work directly with the County's judges and, particularly, our judges assigned to the civil calendar. I assisted the judges on law and motion matters by researching and preparing memos with recommendations on contested law and motion matters. I also sat pro tem on occasion when judges or commissioners were away, hearing law and motion calendars, case management calendars, and small claims.
Senior Counsel
Pacific Telesis Group
-
At Pacific Bell legal, we kept most litigation in-house and I worked on a variety of cases from complex business litigation to simple personal injury and property damage cases. On larger cases, including class actions, I also worked with outside counsel to ensure that the company's interests were protected.
Senior Associate
Haight Brown & Bonesteel
-
At HBB, I was fortunate to work in a litigation department with some of best trial attorneys in the state. I was also given tremendous autonomy from the start and allowed to run cases from start to finish. While there, I learned a tremendous amount about the practice of law and life in general from partners like Bill Baumgaertner and Peter Ezzell.
