Summary

I'm an experienced San Diego criminal defense lawyer who works diligently to achieve the best possible outcome for clients. I help people who have been charged with crimes or are being investigated for them. Whether you are facing penalties for drug crimes, marijuana charges, arson, or violent crimes, I can help. Prior to starting my practice, I gained valuable experience in reviewing search and seizure motions. Many times people are wrongfully charged due to improperly obtained evidence, and that's where I can help. In addition to criminal defense, I'm also actively involved with narcotics policy and reform. I represent several San Diego medical marijuana dispensaries and collectives and ensure that their rights are protected during the administrative process of opening a legal clinic.
