I have focused my career on trial advocacy, with a breadth of experience on cases in all phases of litigation, including jury trials, binding arbitration, and mediation. I am proud to have represented my clients in courtrooms across the State of California, including all San Francisco Bay Area counties, the Central Coast, Central Valley, Sierras, and Southern California.
I have been fortunate to be recognized by my peers, having been named a Super Lawyers Rising Star on multiple occasions, an award given to the top 2.5 percent of attorneys under 40 or in practice for 10 years or less across the State of California and only following the nomination by other lawyers in my practice area.
Prior to my career as a practicing attorney, I clerked for the Honorable Joseph Hurley of the Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland, California. I received my J.D. from the Santa Clara University School of Law, being named to the pro bono list all three years of law school. I was also named the Graduating Student of the Year by Public Interest Law Career Services. I have also made an effort to further the careers of others through mentorship. Prior to law school, I completed my undergraduate education at the University of California at Santa Cruz, receiving a B.A. in Legal Studies.
I am admitted to practice in all California state courts, and am an active member of the Alameda County and Contra Costa Bar Associations as well as the State Bar Litigation Section.
