After 14 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer and litigator in Southern California, I am the perfect candidate for not only your tutoring needs but more importantly to mentor your child that may be starting to get into trouble or skate on the wild side of life. I have lived much like the "Lincoln lawyer" for 14 years and have a very strong 12 step knowledge. Hire me to counsel, tutor, and mentor your son or daughter. I will instill in them the strength and knowledge to not only survive but thrive in the "real world". Getting your loved one back on track is my goal. My fee is fully refundable if NOT COMPLETELY SATISFIED.

I am also available as a jury consultant or constitutional rights consultant and can guide your search for a great job in whatever area of law you may want to pursue.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I studied for and passed the California Bar Exam on my first attempt. I contributed to the Bar Bri bar review course in California and have been a practicing attorney for 14 years.

College Counseling

I was a college counselor at the University of California at Santa Barbara for two years before moving on to law school. I have also counseled many students as a "volunteer counselor" at Ventura City College during the time I was practicing law in that city. I never had any complaints and had a lot of happy students!

Criminal Justice

I have been a criminal defense attorney for the last 14 years. I have lectured on constitutional rights and jury selection

Public Speaking

In my 14-year career as a criminal defense attorney, I have done close to 100 jury trials and have presented thousands of cases and issues to Judges. There is no better practice for public speaking then being a trial lawyer and presenting a convincing case to a jury.

Soccer

I have played soccer in AYSO for 12 years and Santa Monica REAL (Club Soccer) for 2 years. I have coached AYSO teams and am a AYSO/FIFA approved Referee.

Sociology

I have my B.A. in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Barbara and have been a practicing criminal law litigation attorney for 14 years. Jury selection and the ability to pick the right jury for the close to one hundred jury trials I have done has contributed to my extensive knowledge of groups of people and how they think and relate in both social and stressful situations.

Study Skills

I utilized the most productive study skills available in both college and law school. I studied and passed the California Bar Exam on the first attempt. I have lectured on study skills and test preparation and have been a practicing attorney for 14 years.

Swimming

I grew up at the beach in Santa Monica, California and spent thousands of days either in the Ocean or in a pool swimming surfing and teaching others how to do the same. I am Red Cross CPR and Basic First Aid certified.
