I have been an active member of the community on the western slope of El Dorado County for over 20 years. Prior to becoming an attorney, I was the broker/owner of Century 21 Great West Properties in Placerville and Pollock Pines. With as many as 60 realtor associates working under my license, I dealt with various and often serious issues occurring in real estate transactions. That experience exposed me to delicate problems often associated with divorce or estate matters. I always knew I had the aptitude and capacity to help clients with their legal concerns and problems. I believe that my business and real estate experience is a major asset benefiting my clients because I understand how legal matters can arise and affect your quality of life. It is important to communicate with clients and anticipate problems before they arise.
