Family & Domestic Relations
There is no such thing in family law. Every client is equally important and their cases are all “major,” as they face life-changing decisions affecting their children and their future. I have been honored to argue in front of the Court of Appeals on a case wherein I represented the mother from initial filing through trial, and as a result, helped establish case law in paternity actions.
During law school I worked at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, working with victims of domestic violence, attempting to obtain their legal immigration status. Although I did start my career in Los Angeles working in a small general practice law firm, I moved to San Diego and have worked exclusively in family law for the last eight years. I joined Basie and Fritz in October 2004, where I enjoy working with the attorneys and paralegals who are all intelligent and strong advocates for our clients. I represent people from all walks of life on cases ranging from the simple agreed-upon dissolution to highly contested custody matters.

I am originally from Los Angeles and am an avid and loyal sports fan, including the Dodgers, Lakers and the UCLA Bruins, and take in music concerts whenever I can. I have a supportive family and a devilish Chihuahua.
