I have the experience and knowledge you are looking for; I have been practicing law for over 30 years, the last 25 in Dublin, in Alameda county. Like many defense attorneys, I began my career in the District Attorney’s Office prosecuting DUI cases. Unlike many, I also have experience working in the Public Defender’s Office. I appear regularly before the judges in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties. I know most of the District Attorneys and can effectively negotiate with them on your behalf.
I care about my clients and try to make an unpleasant experience better. As a wife and mother of three, I know how important your time and freedom is. I try to keep my clients from ever needing to take time from their schedules to attend court. I always attempt to get the minimum sentence possible and work alternative, not jail.
My relationship with the court is helped by my sitting as Judge Pro Tem in both traffic court and small claims. As a member of several legal associations, California Bar Association, Alameda County Bar Association, Eastern Alameda County Bar Association, California DUI Lawyers Association (previously known as Deuce Defenders) Bay Area Traffic Ticket Defense Attorneys and California Traffic Defenders Bar Association , I stay on top of the law and changes to it which affect my clients.
