By way of background, I am a graduate of the University of California-Berkeley, the University of Missouri School of Medicine, University of Missouri School of Public Administration (Health Care), the Southwestern University School of Law. I have also had formal classroom work in International Law at the University of San Diego School of Law. I am also a Certified Mediator.

 Although I am a licensed physician trained in Internal Medicine, I have been in the full-time practice of law for the past thirty-three years. 

My law practice has been somewhat eclectic. I have handled scores of medical malpractice cases and have recovered millions of dollars for my clients. I have also represented physicians and medical groups in business matters, civil rights litigation, criminal defense, licensing, hospital privileges and certification issues. I am defense counsel for several local homes that provide care for disabled adults. 

I also have experience in criminal defense including major crime, including murder and criminal conspiracy cases involving international drug and theft rings in Federal Courts in North Carolina and Virginia.

I have done a considerable amount of civil rights litigation, including Title VI and Title VII and Eighth Amendment cases. I am a legal advisor to a local NAACP Chapter and a legal advisor to the Congress Of Racial Equality- California. I have class action experience---including as lead counsel in a case against a Los Angeles County water district.
