I spent my early childhood on the East Coast. In the summer of 1977, I moved with my family from Philadelphia Pennsylvania to Orange County, California, settling in Garden Grove.
In 1985, I graduated from Loara High School in Anaheim, California, and attended UCLA where, in 1989, I graduated Phi Beta Kappa, Cum Laude with a degree in Communication studies. While at UCLA, I spent my junior year studying at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Upon graduating from UCLA, I attended law school at the University of Southern California (USC) where I graduated in 1992.
After graduating USC law school, I began working in the Century City (Los Angeles) law firm then known as Christensen, White, Miller, Fink & Jacobs but discovered that a big firm practice was not to my liking.
In 1994, I opened up my own practice in Los Angeles, California, but have since relocated to Orange County, CA where I practice in the areas of estate planning, probate, business litigation, contract litigation, employment litigation, intentional torts such as libel, slander, conversion, and NASD arbitration.
In addition, since 1994, I have served the congregation of Temple Beth Emet in Anaheim, California as their Cantor.
My other interests include song writing, playing guitar, and traveling.
I also co-wrote and executive produced an award winning feature film called The Yankles www.yankles.com released on home video by Magnolia Pictures in 2012.
A young lawyer was at a job interview when the hiring partner told the prospective employee that his firm was only interested in hiring ethical and honest lawyers. The young lawyer responded, "Sir, I am very honest. In fact, I borrowed $15,000 from my father to go to law school and paid back every cent after I handled my first case." Impressed, the hiring partner asked, "What was the case about?"; to which the young lawyer answered, "My father sued me for the money."
I practice in the areas of:
- Estate Planning
- Business Litigation
- Contract Litigation
- Premerital Agreements
