Let me introduce myself.....I am a consulting professional land planner and California licensed attorney with a practice focused on land use, real property, municipal law, and the resolution of neighbor property disputes. 

       As a former staff planner for the County of Sonoma, I was responsible for the conduct of area wide specific plans resulting in the zoning of thousands of acres of land (Joy Road, Forestville, Cloverdale, Geyserville, Sonoma Mountain).  Over the years  I have served as an instructor at Santa Rosa Junior College, a member of the Sonoma County Airport Land Use Commission, and consultant planning director of the City of Cloverdale. 

       Throughout my career, I have prepared and processed hundreds of city and county applications for land use entitlements inclusive of subdivisions, use permits, variances, re-zonings, and general plan amendments for a wide range of individual property owners, developers, wineries, and non-profits.

       My law practice emphasizes problem solving and the practical resolution

of real estate transactions, boundary encroachments, title defects, easements, code violations, and neighbor-nuisance disputes. 

       I have resided in Sonoma County for over 40 years, raised a wonderful family, built a couple of my own homes, subdivided property, and developed single family and multi-family residential property both for myself and with others.

      My education includes degrees from Rutgers University (BA), New York University (MPA), and Empire Law School (JD). 

       I am a sole practitioner...not a law firm.  You have my undivided attention.  

      I offer the benefit of seasoned, practical, hands-on personal experience.

                Thanks for your consideration.
