— Education Client, 2013


I offer aggressive and creative Education Law representation in disputed matters for students, teachers, and private schools from grade school through graduate programs. I handle legal disputes related to School and Teacher Misconduct, Suspensions, Expulsions, Plagiarism, Bullying, School Campus Injuries and related Civil and Criminal Defense matters, Academic Freedom and Civil Rights issues, School Discrimination, Special Education, Teacher Employment Contracts, and General Counsel representation for Private Schools.

I have a unique first-hand understanding of such matters. Prior to my years of professional experience as an Education Law Attorney, I served my community as a teacher at the Middle School, High School, and University levels. I was one of 1,000 California Governor’s Teaching Fellowship recipients selected for my dedication to teaching “at-risk” youth in Continuation High Schools and under-served cities.

I am a passionate litigator when necessary as well as a dedicated negotiator focused on bringing opposing parties to the table to avoid costly and protracted courtroom battles.
