Summary

With four decades of legal experience, I provide counsel for Business, Real Estate, Estate Planning, Tax, Intellectual Property, Entertainment & Sports, and Hospitality Law matters. Based in Southern California, I represent clients as outside general counsel throughout the world. I am dedicated to delivering legal expertise and experience focused on the best possible outcomes.

Highly accomplished and respected by peers, I have been honored as the 2018 Southern California Lawyer of the Year for Closely-Held Companies & Family Businesses Law, and the 2019 Southern California Lawyer of the Year for Trusts and Estates.

Outside of work, I am committed to giving back to the community, with a particular dedication to children and the fight against hunger. My involvement includes serving as the Director and President of the Center for Childhood, founding Lawyers Against Hunger, as well as work with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and American Academy for Dance and Kindred Arts.
