Loyola Law School, Los Angeles
After graduating from Loyola Law School, in Los Angeles and J.D. in 1978, I worked for two insurance defense firms. I discovered insurance companies don't care about people, only about making money.

Given my background I have a keen understanding of insurance companies delay and over-reaching tactics. It gives me great satisfaction to successfully protect anyone who is taken advantage of by an insurance company, corporation or public entity. I believe in diligence and fairness when it comes to persuing the rights of those...

As a lawyer, counselor, provider, family man, grandpa and outdoor adventurist, I've witnessed much pain and suffering caused by lack of focus and failure to remember the personal core values that drive our lives on this earth.....especially during trying times. I work hard and play hard....

Injury Law for the 21st century: Traditionally, a call to a lawyer meant making an appointment, driving to an office to meet in person, parking and waiting just to ask a few questions or sign papers.

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
