Who I am

Professionally, I have spent the bulk of my career in financial services.  I have been a loan officer, operations trainer, office manager and tax consultant.  I have helped people who were victims of identity theft.  I have seen how these different areas have drastically affected people’s lives.  The value to the individual is not in the money saved, made, or lost but in the knowledge.  Ignorance is a liability.

I have helped many different small businesses to develop and grow.  Planning is the greatest asset.  A business’ success is directly proportional to their ability analyze, identify, and eliminate problems and waste.  I am exceptional at problem solving and eliminating waste.

I am also a second-year law student.  I am graduating from California Western School of Law in December 2016. I am graduating with a Juris Doctor concentrating in Business Law.  I am taking the California State Bar in February of 2017.  After passing the Bar, I will seek a position as an associate attorney at a small or boutique law firm.  If the right position is unavailable, I will be creating my own opportunities and begin a solo law practice.

My goal is to help businesses in two primary ways.  First, help them build and retain wealth to expand and strengthen their market share.  Second, reduce their general liability and exposure to fraud.

Please Note: Because I am a law student, nothing on this site should be construed as legal advice, nor should an attorney-client relationship be implied.  I am not an attorney.  If you have a legal question, please consult a licensed attorney in your area.  At this time, and until I am admitted to the bar I am unable to answer legal questions.  If you have questions about law school I will do my best to answer them, however, your experience may be different so please do not rely solely on my answer.
