Claimed Lawyer Profile

My practice focuses on estate planning, trust administration, and probate and estate litigation. I have diverse experience in the areas of wills, trusts, business formation, federal and state taxation, and estate litigation. His litigation clients include individual and professional trustees, beneficiaries, surviving spouses, care givers, and omitted heirs. Prior to joining Albence and Associates, APC, I practiced at a major securities litigation firm headquartered in San Diego. I was involved in a variety of complex litigation cases, including mortgage backed securities cases and post-merger derivative suits. This diverse litigation experience in multi-party, national scale cases, blends well with my estate planning and tax experience, to afford my estate litigation clients exceptional representation. I earned my law degree from the University of San Diego, where I also received a Master of Laws in Taxation, with an emphasis on complex estate planning and business planning. Prior to law school, I earned my B.A. in Economics from UC San Diego. I am licensed to practice law in California, and to appear in the Southern District of the United States Federal Court. Some of my philanthropic activities include the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program, Habitat for Humanity, and the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer program.
