- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I offer a free consultation for criminal and DUI cases, and competitive flat rates for representation.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to start with a free consult - in person, video call, or phone - to get to know each other and come up with a general case strategy. If you retain me from there, I will keep you in the up to date with case developments and make sure you are fully involved in all decisions in what is surely a difficult and confusing time. I pride myself on communication and honesty, which can be lacking in this profession.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I graduated UC-Hastings College of Law in 2010 with a concentration in criminal law. I have worked as a criminal defense lawyer based in Placer County since then, including with my own firm since 2016. I have represented hundreds of clients in Placer, Sacramento, El Dorado, Nevada, Yuba, and Sutter counties and many others. I have argued 100s of contested motions, 100s of DMV proceedings, and over a dozen jury trials.
