I grew up in the Bay Area, went to law school in San Francisco, and love all of Northern California. I am determined to protect the freedoms and reputations of the Bay Area’s civilians by rigorously defending those accused of a crime.  If you are accused of a crime, you deserve a strong and fearless advocate to fight against the resources and power of the government. No matter how serious the crime, everyone is morally and constitutionally entitled to a zealous and enthusiastic defense. You are innocent until proven guilty and deserve that respect from the courts and your lawyer.
