I have been highly effective in motivating people to look at their differences in a new light.
My extensive experience of working with couples going through the travails of divorce allows me to get under the emotional blocks that often prevent disputants from resolution in a wide-range of conflicts, both legal and non-legal. Mediation services cover divorce including the paperwork, filing, pension division, asset evaluation and minor children concerns. My education and experience also provides me with a strong foundation to comprehend highly technical subjects such as intellectual property conflicts and construction defect issues as well as real property sales and wrongful termination disputes, and labor and organizational relationships. I do all my mediation sessions at the fine offices of Redwood Reporting Services in the Round Barn Area of Santa Rosa.
Commercial Traffic Defense
Defending drivers and trucking companies in vehicle code violations mostly in Northern California. Representing drivers in DMV actions including negligent driving and medical suspension hearings.
Issues include legal defense of commercial and non-commercial vehicle code violations for both infractions and misdemeanors. My representation has resulted in dismissals, reduced violations that may or may not appear on the DMV record, not guilty decisions and guilty outcomes.
Small Claims Appeals
I have been highly successful in representing parties in small claims appeals. Most recently in Sacramento over a case of damage to a refrigerated trailer.
Small Claims Appeal information from the State Court:
When you appeal a small claims judgment, you ask the superior court to change the small claims court judge’s decision. You will have another court hearing and must present your case again. A small claims appeal is a “trial de novo” or “new trial.” This means that the case is decided by a new judge from the beginning so you have to present your case all over again. Because this case is in the civil division of the superior court (and NOT in small claims court), you (and the other side) are allowed to bring a lawyer to represent you in the new trial. Read More…
