Welcome to my campaign website...

I have been a Deputy District Attorney prosecuting serious crimes for over 18+ years.

During my career, I have tried over 50 jury trials, including murders, and thousands of preliminary hearings. As a trial deputy assigned to the Central Felony Trials Unit, I tried serious and violent felonies involving gang crimes and domestic violence. In my current assignment in the Bureau of Fraud and Corruption, I prosecute consumer related crimes that involve financial and identity fraud. .

Having been born, raised and educated in Los Angeles County, I have life-long ties to our great community. I would be honored to serve as a Superior Court Judge. I would bring experience and balance to this position and uphold America's core value of equal access to justice for all.

I look forward to meeting you in the months ahead. I ask for your vote on November 8, 2016. Your support to my campaign is sincerely appreciated.

Thank you for visiting my website.
