I have been practicing law since 1981. Prior to that, I was a real estate sales person between 1977 to 1981. In addition to my experience in the world of real estates sales, I gained valuable transactional law experience when I served as corporate counsel to a large multi-national civil engineering corporation between 1983 to 1989. Since 1989, I have been a sole practitioner initially in Campbell (1981-82, 1989) and then in San Mateo since 1991 to the present. I have trial experience in various areas of the law having tried jury and court trial cases in San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda and Merced County Courts. I have also tried cases in the Northern District U.S. Bankruptcy Court and Worker's Compensation Appeals Board in San Francisco. I have taught Real Estate courses at the Junior College level as well as Business Law, International Law and Landlord Tenant Law for junior college, City University and Peninsula Law School. I have acted as pro tem judge in Mateo County Limited Jurisdiction Courts for Unlawful Detainers about once every other month. I am a member of the local bar association.; Lang:Greek, Spanish
I advise those who wish to ascertain their rights and responsibilities in the areas of real estate, the type of litigation or remedies available and the costs of litigation when litigation is necessary to determine their rights.
Some areas are set out below:
Commercial and residential real estate including Broker & Transaction Litigation, Buying & Selling, Condos & Coops, Construction Contracts, Conveyancing, Homeowners' Associations, Renting & Leasing and Evictions
In the areas of probate, wills, estates, I prepare wills and trusts that will avoid probate as well as the durable powers of attorney for health care and property management, trust certifications/modifications/codicils/amendments. I work with estate planners and accountants and address the various issues that arise in estate planning. If probate is necessary, then I represent the estate and proceed with all the court hearings, documents and other matters necessary to transfer the property to their heirs.
My practice includes the area of family law including custody issues, division issues and in general, all issues related to separation or final dissolution.
