I became an Attorney because I want to help people - simple as that. Living in today's society can be complicated, and unfortunately sometimes bad things happen to people. Fortunately, we have a legal system that provides remedy for those who have suffered a loss or harm at the hands of others. That's where I come in - I am here to help.
I was a Freshman in college when the attacks on September 11, 2001, occurred. I remember there being a lot of confusion and uncertainty at what was going to happen from that point on. However, the thing I was certain about was that I had to do something. So I left school not too long after, and joined the Marine Corps. After a tour in Iraq, and 6 years of service, I left the Marine Corps as a Sergeant and headed back to college to finish my education. At this point the future was more clear to me, I had to figure out a way to continue being of service to those in need.
So with my military obligations and my college education complete, I moved out to San Diego to attend law school at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. There I studied law with some of the brightest minds I've met, under some of the greatest mentors I've had, and fell deeply in love with this city and state I now call home. After graduating I worked in corporate construction defect litigation. While I learned a lot, I felt I could be doing more to help people in need than just defending corporations. From there I started working for a small personal injury practice. After several years, and hundreds of cases, I decided to expand my practice to help others, in addition to those who have been injured. I am a member of various Bar Associations including San Diego County Bar Association, Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, and will be joining California Employment Lawyers Association.
When I am not helping others, you can find me spending time with my fiancee and dogs. We just bought a house here in San Diego, and hope to start our family soon. We love to travel and experience other cultures, especially their cuisines, when we can. I try to remain as active as I can and still manage, and play for, a men's soccer team here in San Diego. I also love to ski, backpack, camp, and surf when I have time. I look forward to getting to know you, and helping you out in anyway way I can.
