Biography: I have been a trial attorney for almost 50 years. I have tried cases in all state and federal courts and have handled appeals before most of the state appellate courts, as well as the Ninth Circuit Court. I have tried hundreds of cases of both court and jury trials. I have achieved a success rate of more than 90 percent. Some sample cases:

  • I obtained a jury verdict and judgment for a commercial real estate broker for $10 million.
  • A developer that I represented against another developer got a $22 million result.
  • I represented a distributor against a Japanese manufacturer on a cross-complaint and obtained a $3.5 million verdict and judgment.
  • I got a defense verdict on a $12 million claim against a client as a result of an airplane crash.
  • A claim against a client for $4 million in an Oregon court involving an Oregon ranch resulted in a defense verdict.
  • A developer I represented obtained a $2 million judgment in a Las Vegas court.
  • I have been involved in litigation on numerous cases involving loan workouts with commercial lenders.

Our firm has been involved in a number of large collection matters.
