I am licensed to practice in California and Ontario, Canada, and I provide advice on the law of both jurisdictions.
My expertise is in complex litigation, including employment, business, fraud, class actions, and cross-border disputes. I represent individuals and businesses as both plaintiffs and as defendants.
My work often focuses on legal writing at the trial court and appellate levels, and I have served as the lead brief writer in complex commercial and consumer cases in federal and state courts throughout the United States, as well as before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal for Ontario, and the Federal Court of Canada. I have also co-written briefs/facta for matters before the Supreme Court of Canada and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
I have handled all aspects of complex civil litigation, including investigations, discovery, expert work, certification of class actions, summary judgment motions, settlement, trial, and appeals.
Before striking out on my own, I practiced with the Silicon Valley offices of Robins Kaplan LLP and Paliare Roland Rosenberg Rothstein LLP in Toronto, Canada. I have been named a Super Lawyers Northern California Rising Star every year since 2015.
I am passionate about pro bono work. I currently represent low income and vulnerable litigants through the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Justice and Diversity Center and the Asylum Program of the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights of San Francisco.
I am deeply committed to making legal services affordable for ordinary people. Contact me here or call 415.712.3026 to discuss working together.
