  • I am a 1982 graduate of Yale Law School.
  • I am certified as a specialist in appellate law by the State Bar of California-Board of Legal Specialization.
  • Since 1996, I have been a member of the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
  • I have been voted by my peers as an Appellate Law Super Lawyer in Northern California Super Lawyers magazine every year from 2005 through 2021.
  • I have a “Superb” — 10.0 out of 10.0 — avvo.com rating.
  • I served as a member of the State Bar Committee on Appellate Courts in 1991-1994.
  • I served as the chair of the Appellate Courts Section of the Santa Clara County Bar Association in 1989 and 1990.
  • I have special expertise in appeals before the Sixth District Court of Appeal in San Jose. The Pacific Law Journal published three of my articles, each of which analyzed the Sixth District’s published decisions in civil cases over a three-year period. Few, if any, attorneys have argued as many civil appeals before the Sixth District as I have.
  •  Among attorneys who have a law practice located within the jurisdiction of the Sixth District (which covers the counties of Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey, and San Benito, and includes the major Silicon Valley cities of San Jose and Palo Alto), I have the rare distinction of being both a certified specialist in appellate law and a member of the California Academy of Appellate Lawyers.
