Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in San Ramon before moving to Pleasanton during elementary school.
I have lived in Pleasanton for the majority of my life and call it home. Since I am a part of the local community, I feel an attachment to the people that I represent.
I have been practicing law for over a decade and, except for a very brief time, I have only practiced workers’ compensation law. I worked for a number of years at the Law Office of Alan Grossman here in Pleasanton, representing injured workers, prior to Mr. Grossman selling his practice.
I subsequently worked for insurance defense firms before returning to representing those injured on the job.
Each case has its own issues and my strength lies in making what can be a cumbersome and complex system easier for my clients to navigate. The California Legislature has just enacted new laws that are once again changing the dynamics of how to obtain certain benefits.
As for my educational background, after graduating from Foothill High School, I obtained my Bachelor or Arts Degree from California State University, Sacramento. I then went on to earn my law degree from Gonzaga University.
