I aim to lend my talents and skills to individuals and businesses that need help solving conflicts with others but prefer to avoid the stress and expense of litigation.

My professional goals are

-to preserve and maintain my integrity, neutrality, and sensitivity for all who seek my services
-to maintain and improve my interpersonal, communication, and negotiation skills for the benefit of those whom I serve, through formal continuing education and otherwise
-to serve people and businesses resolve conflicts that may not always lead to lawsuits

As a trial lawyer for 32 years, I have represented thousands of individuals and businesses, as a prosecuting attorney and in private civil practice, in the arenas of antitrust and unfair business practices (including criminal prosecution of securities law violations); personal injury claims (including defamation, property damage and wrongful death claims); disputes over insurance contract interpretation; environmental damage and injury claims (including toxic contamination and toxic tort claims); intellectual property disputes; construction defect litigation; landlord-tenant claims, inter-neighbor disputes, nursing facility elder abuse lawsuits; claims arising under maritime law (including maritime injury suits and cargo claims); and breach of contract, copyright infringement, and other business disputes.

I enjoy motorcycling, playing my acoustic guitar, and taking photographs with my digital SLR. I like reading, writing, and arithmetic. I'm a WWII buff. I try to get out into nature through walking and camping. I find woodworking and carpentry to be relaxing, challenging, and practical.

I've belonged to the Sonoma County Bar Association since July 1989. I joined B.N.I Gateway to Success in January 2010.

I'm an exceptional listener, an effective speaker and writer, and a quick learner.
