My primary practice area is within the State of California, serving Palo Alto, Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area. Occasionally, I am asked by a client to negotiate and document an agreement outside California. In that event, I engage local counsel to ensure that the end product complies with the practices, regulations and laws in that state or country.
In what way are the legal services I provide distinctive? For the benefit of my client and consistent with my passion for the work I do, the first step in my representation is to walk 360 degrees around each new matter, to assess the legal issues at stake and to provide an initial assessment of what is involved and the attendant risks. If, at the end of that process, I believe I cannot add value, I candidly so inform the client.
As a representation proceeds, my clients and I work as members of a team, relying on one another’s knowledge, sensibilities and priorities.
Following many years as a partner in a prestigious California real estate and land use law firm, I opened my own firm in 2011 and now work as a sole practitioner, providing transactional counsel on real estate, land use and contract law from my office in Palo Alto. My reputation rests on my long history of providing the highest quality legal services for California individuals and businesses. To ensure that I can deliver on that commitment, I undertake only a limited number of matters and clients; that ensures my availability and my focus.
