Personal Injury Practice Areas
Have you been seriously injured because of another person's negligence? If so, you may be able to recover your damages by filing a personal injury claim. My firm has recovered compensation for
motorcycle accidents, and
bicycle accidents, as well as
premises liability. As an avid cyclist myself, I regularly sponsor and volunteer for cycling events in San Diego County. I know your
bicyclist rights and understand
insurance coverage for bicyclists. In addition to my years of cycling experience, I have obtained the Traffic Skills 101 Certificate from the League of American Bicyclists. All of this establishes that I am highly qualified to handle your bike accident case.
Military veterans can also find a strong advocate for their serious injuries by retaining my firm. I understand the serious nature of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in those who have returned from active duty overseas. My firm can recover compensation for veterans who are suffering from non-military related injuries.
Criminal Defense Practice Areas
One of the most common criminal defense cases that my firm handles is
driving under the influence (DUI). If you have been arrested for drunk driving, I understand the
DUI process and can skillfully defend you, regardless of your results for a
breath or blood test. I am also experienced with
DMV hearings and can help you
save your license. Aside from DUI, my firm also provides aggressive defense against charges of
violent crimes, and
juvenile crimes. I will thoroughly research the laws relevant to your case in order to build the strongest possible defense.
Military veterans can also find a strong criminal defense advocate by retaining my firm. I understand the serious nature of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in those that have returned from active duty overseas. Many veterans find themselves drinking, fighting, and acting out as a result of their PTSD symptoms. This often leads to criminal charges. My firm understands the unique condition of veterans, and knows how to obtain reduced penalties, or alternatives to jail per PC 1170.9 laws – designed to treat the veteran, instead of jail them. My firm is also familiar with the details of Veteran's Court too.
My firm will aggressively defend our solders if they find themselves charged with misdemeanor or felony crimes.
