UC San Diego (History)
Pepperdine Law School (J.D.)
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Gary O. I have been practicing law for more than thirty-six (36) years, mostly in civil litigation, personal injury and criminal defense. I have handled all of the personal injury cases in my association with law offices, from inception through trial or binding arbitration. I have settled many cases in the range of $100,000-$200,000. I have settled cases for $415,000 and $500,000. I have sued well-known defendants, and I am well versed in the rules of civil procedure, as well as the local rules in state and federal court. I am very familiar and comfortable using the e-fling system in federal court, as well as state court.
I have taught classes at Western State (now Thomas Jefferson) Law School in legal research and writing, as well as legal malpractice. I have taught classes at USD Paralegal School in civil procedure.
I am an excellent communicator, a superb writer, and an enthusiastic and effective teacher. In my legal career, I have managed employees, interns, and huge and crowded case loads. I am extremely detail oriented. All of these skills are necessary in order to be successful in the practice of law.
I am a voracious reader and a firm believer in learning something new every day. I look forward to making subjects, such as reading comprehension, writing, public speaking and U.S. History, exciting to the students whoI am fortunate enough to tutor. In my opinion, this is the kind of job that can make a big difference in the lives of children and young adults.
I am interested in retiring from the practice of law. I bring a wealth of skills and information to tutoring.
Thank you for your professional courtesy and consideration.

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.
I have been a history buff since the age of twelve (12). I graduated from University of California at San Diego with a Bachelors Degree in United States History. History is an extremely exciting and relevant subject in today's troubled times and has a lot to teach us about living in our fast paced global economy.
I have been practicing law for more than thirty-six (36) years, mostly in civil litigation, personal injury and criminal defense. The last case I tried in 2008 was a criminal defense case where my client was accused of assault with a deadly weapon and battery with serious injury, arising out of an alleged altercation at a bar in downtown San Diego on or about January 13, 2007. My client was acquitted of all charges.
The first eight (8) years of my law practice consisted solely of criminal defense matters. I am intimately familiar with all phases of criminal defense litigation, such as preliminary hearings, motions to dismiss, motions to suppress evidence, settlement conferences and trials. I was responsible for formulating the fist full standing discovery order issued by the North San Diego County (Vista) Municipal Court.
I was on the debate team in high school and college I was voted best debater in high school. In my thirty-six (36) years of practice as an attorney I have litigated between 50-75 trials, mediations and arbitrations. I am familiar with use of power point as a visual aid to speaking to a jury. Basically, public speaking has been my life for more than forty (40) years.
