Biography

I attended law school in my mid 30s after earning my degree in speech communications, traveling a bit, waiting on tables, running a small food business and teaching tennis for eight years. Translated, I had a bit of a life and a well developed personality and world outlook at law school, unlike so many "kids" who go straight out of college and learn only to fight. My job is to see your issues from the legal and non legal sides. I need to see how the other side thinks as well to end up with successful results.

I do not come from an ivory tower. I've been poor, very poor, for years, and whatever I have I have earned it on my own. Remembering that path and that climb is essential to everything I do, every day and why I fight for all that you deserve and usually try to get you a bit more than the law allows. That is why you will find excellent reviews out there on my practice. We strive to please in your time of need.

Legal Answers
139 Questions Answered
Q. My deceased sister's car was towed and held in the tow company's lot. They're demanding $10K in storage fee's, in Ca.
A: So, great response by Attorney Kane. AND I'd ask him if I could (no space for it apparently) whether the debt ceases to exist or be collectible, upon the passing of the owner? Also, I'm confident that the tow yard can sell the vehicle at auction, with proper notice, and then collect some or all arrears there.
Q. Can a cashier in a grocery store ask my age directly? I did not buy any age related items. Illegal? Thanks!
A: Illegal like a crime? Your question is hard to understand.
Q. I’m reaching out to you guys trying to seek advice For buying a faulty car from a private party
A: Sorry for your issues. Lemon law is warranty law. This seller likely did not give you a warranty, so, no lemon law claim. Sounds like you were lied to and you think you can prove this. That would be fraud. For a fraud claim, your reliance on his lies must be 'reasonable.' Only a court can decide if it was, assuming you prove your case. Good luck with it.
