20160427_143632Peace. Prosperity. Mindfulness. Love. Awareness. Gratitude. Compassion. Forgiveness.

These are some of the concepts that I hold dear.

I love our planet and all life.

I am an attorney, a counselor, a guide, an organizer, a host, a giver, a healer, a mediator, a producer, a collaborator, a yogini, a vegan, a messenger, a teacher, a student, a friend, a lover, and a fighter.

I have been practicing law and running my own practice since June 2005.  I graduated Dean’s List from Cornell University before going on to McGeorge School of Law where I graduated with Great Distinction.   I believe that the practice of law is a noble profession that demands the highest standards of honesty and integrity, and I am passionate about protecting my clients.

I have been a devoted animal lover my entire life, and abruptly adopted a strict vegan lifestyle in May 2001 after learning about the cruelties of factory farming at a festival in Davis, CA.   I have learned a tremendous amount about cooking, nutrition, animals, sustainability, and the human psyche.  I find it incredibly rewarding to apply this knowledge, and I am now working to help individuals, business, and organizations incorporate plant-based, sustainable options into their practices.

I believe that we are alive during one of the most incredible times in all of history.  The human race is quickly reaching a tipping point that will force them to undertake a critical analysis of their way of life.  The system as it stands now is simply not sustainable.  At some point in the not-so-distant future things will change, if only by necessity.  I see the possibility for a future that is based on peace, prosperity, mindfulness, love, awareness, gratitude, compassion, and forgiveness.  A way of life that is sustainable and beneficial for all.  It is my mission and purpose to help facilitate this transition in every way I can with optimism and practicism.
