Describe your business.

I’m a criminal defense attorney who primarily handles the defense of driving under the influence and narcotics cases.

What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?

I worked in the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office for more than nine years and then in the El Dorado District Attorney’s Office for more than 15 years. I handled cases ranging from murder and sexual assault to theft, driving under the influence and controlled substances. I learned that there are two sides to every case; I think that’s what makes a great prosecutor or defense attorney.

How are you involved with both the community and your customer?

I support our local businesses and am a member of the El Dorado County Bar Association.

What life accomplishments are you most proud of?

My 26-year marriage to my incredibly supportive husband who I met in law school, and my two daughters—one’s in Davis hoping to become a veterinarian, and the other is in middle school hoping to become a Marine and FBI agent.

Where do you go when the going gets tough?

The gym.

What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?

Café Campanile and Bistro 33 in El Dorado Hills.

Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?

Dimple Records—we miss record and video stores.

If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?

George Carlin—he was a comedic genius and I think it would be entertaining to meet him.

What’s your favorite local business other than your own?

Lazio in El Dorado Hills.

And finally, customer service is…?

Achieving the best results for my clients, while upholding the integrity of the legal justice system.
