Attorney at Law

I am currently in career transition and will update this web page when I have further information to report.

I have been a practicing attorney in California for over 30 years.  I am well-versed in both transactional and litigation matters.  I have appellate experience in state and federal appellate courts. I have done civil and criminal jury and non-jury trials, business litigation and substantial amounts of bankruptcy adversary litigation, Chapter 11 debtor representation and bankruptcy appeals.

I am a graduate of UCLA School of Law, where among other things, I focused on Entertainment and Intellectual Property law.  At UCLA, my curriculum included an independent study research thesis on methods for independent (non-traditional) financing of movies.   I have non-law experience in various facets of the Entertainment Industry, including the music and feature film businesses.  At various stages of my career, I have engaged in talent direction and management; been an editor of music industry publications, and was the founding attorney for Quiet Tiger Records.
