My journey through the legal world has taken me coast to coast across the United States! I began my higher education at UMass./Amherst before completing my JD at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA. During that time, I interned with both the United States Attorney’s Office as well as the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office. Though I have been practicing out of Oakland going back to my time with Cellino & Barnes, I remain admitted to the Bar in both California and Massachusetts.
Prior to joining The Barnes Firm, I represented insurance companies on the other side of personal injury claims. As such, I have experience and understanding of the legal tactics defense teams will employ to avoid payouts to accident victims. Given that and my 30 years of practice that includes securing several multi-million dollar settlements, I am confident I will be your best choice to fight for the compensation and justice you deserve.
I have successfully argued personal injury cases to trial and won favorable jury verdicts across the Bay Area; including in the Alameda, San Francisco, Santa Clara, and Stanislaus counties.
