I received my BA from U.C. Davis in 1978 and my law degree from Whittier College in 1981. I have been practicing law, mainly in the environmental and commercial areas for over 30 years. I also have a side practice in civil rights and church-state law and have litigated several major cases in that area. I have a thriving trial and appellate practice centered in the San Francisco Bay area. As a trial lawyer I have obtained multimillion dollar verdicts and obtained defense verdicts in cases where the plaintiff was asking for millions. I am also an accomplished photographer, and have many shows as well as a successful website.
My family and kids first. Everything else is second and I see life through a prism that puts them at the center. Then comes photography, the law, and my favorite question "why?."
The power of the single word "why." As long as we are asking that question and seeking answers there is always hope. I see too often that kids and adults are not concerned about why things happen. They are too accepting. Why breads curiosity and curiosity is the greatest attribute that one can have. It makes us interesting and allows us to expand and grow. It causes us to gain the knowledge to fix things and make our lives better. Every great advance that humankind has made began with curiosity and the single word why.
