It has been my pleasure to work alongside Mr. Sieveke since 1995.  Together we have dedicated our practice to helping people through some of the most stressful times in their lives. With dignity, respect and compassion we help clients navigate the uncertainties of the legal system.  We recognize that legal problems can be intimidating and overwhelming.  We pride ourselves on walking clients through their cases from start to finish always keeping their best interests in mind. 

We are a small law firm.  Clients enjoy the benefits of personal attention from either myself or Mr. Sieveke.  There are no associates to be passed off to after your initial consultation.  We invite you to experience the difference personal service and attention to detail makes in resolving your legal issues.

I received my Paralegal Certificate from the University of California, Irvine.
