I was born and raised here in Sacramento in a real estate family, so I bring a lifelong passion for real estate to my law practice. Growing up, I did everything from cleaning up properties and making sure buildings are in good working order, to organizing paperwork, drafting documents and correspondence, and suggesting ways to optimize our family business. These nuts and bolts of property management form my foundation as a real estate lawyer.

“I’m an avid reader of all genres of books and look forward to the monthly book club I belong to. Even though our book club has a strong focus on charcuterie and wine, we still read the assigned books before our meetings!”
