Career Highlights

For over 20 years I had my own office in Southern California where I retained mortgage bankers and mortgage brokers as clients.  I also retained individual clients for estate plans and probates.

During this time, I retained and represented the largest nursing home company in California doing their collections for them.

In 2001, I merged with a Northern California firm as their mortgage banking division.  Unfortunately, this firm closed at the end of 2005.

Subsequently, I became an in-house legal attorney for a company that controlled 254 title and escrow companies Nationwide plus an exchange company and a foreclosure company.  This company closed at the end of 2007.  Since then, I have been freelance.

Areas of Practice

  • Wills, Trusts & Estates
  • Real Estate
  • Probate
  • Landlord/tenant


I am a creditor's rights attorney.  This means that I represent the lender (i.e. mortgage banker, mortgage broker, private lender) or title insurance company.  I can represent the lender in state, federal or bankruptcy court.  My representation has included evictions after a foreclosure, obtaining relief from stay to move forward with foreclosure, and prosecuting loan, title insurance or bankruptcy fraud.

For individuals, I handle wills and estate plans as well as probates that involve real estate.  Wills and estate plans are on a flat fee basis.  Probate fees are statutory.

In addition, I am a California Real Estate Broker and a Notary.

Depending on the job for which I am retained, I either charge by the hour or on a flat fee basis.

The law school I graduated from was The University of San Fernando Valley COL which after my graduation merged with the University of La Verne College of Law.
