I represent clients in all aspects of litigation concerning environmental tort, bankruptcy, personal injury and construction defect actions. I also represent loan servicers in connection with the recovery of bank loans.
I have direct trial experience as second chair in a jury trial, successfully obtaining a multimillion dollar directed verdict in favor of our client, and I served as a deputy district attorney for the Marin County District Attorney handling numerous jury and bench trials. I successfully argued motions for interim relief and recently obtained a writ of attachment in favor of one of our construction clients.
I defend and take depositions, successfully deal with discovery disputes and identify, interview and manage experts in complex cases involving intricate discovery and multiparty litigation. I also represent clients in difficult multiparty mediation proceedings. Recently, I managed to successfully settle a case in which the parties’ chosen mediator failed to get the parties to find common ground and settle.
I follow the banking trends of Latin American banks providing loan and investment services in the U.S., and I strategize and analyze the legal services these entities need.
