Summary

My practice is multi-layered in the sense that I work with law firms as a litigation consultant and directly with clients as well.

Research and writing. I write and argue oppositions, attend hearings, respond to and propound discovery, attend depositions and mediations. In that capacity, my role is akin to that of an Associate. I also enjoy working directly with clients on these cases. I work primarily on toxic torts, personal injury, business disputes and real estate issues. I am also available for co-counsel opportunities.


Weddings. I have also begun to explore legal issues related to weddings including vendor negotiation, contract review, and advocating for brides and grooms when something goes awry. I would be available to work on issues related to canceled weddings including engagement ring disputes, and negotiating with vendors with stiff cancellation clauses.

Q. Do i need to sign a release for my information to be released to my attorney?
A: You should really ask your attorney about this. That's what s/he is there for. Assuming you are referring to healthcare information? I can tell you that there are some strong privacy laws out there to protect your private health information. Providers won't share that information without your permission which is the purpose of the release. Attorney Advertising This communication may be considered attorney advertising.

Q. Is an NDA a non-compete agreement?
A: Non-compete agreements are generally not legal in CA. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For instance, an employee may not misappropriate "trade secrets." The non-disclosure agreement ("NDA") that you sign may reference trade secrets. I can't give a full analysis of your particular situation (or the “NDA”) because there are not sufficient facts. I can only give you general legal information. You should consult with an attorney. Attorney Advertising This communication may be considered attorney advertising.
