“Giving Experience and a Strong Voice to District 5”
Having practiced law for well over 20 years and through significant involvement with various professional and community oriented organizations I am uniquely qualified to serve as Trustee for the 5th District. I have managed a private practice in Bakersfield, California, emphasizing in both State and Federal Criminal Defense since 1988. I am a member of the Kern and Fresno County Bar Associations and am Past President of the Kern County Bar Association. I recently completed a two year term as the Northern California Representative with the State Bench and Bar Coalition. In addition, in 2009, I was awarded the Bar Leader of the Year Award by the BBC, and in 2010, was the recipient of the KCBA Bench & Bar Award. Apart from the above, I served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1979-1983, and am currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Army Reserve Judge Advocate Generals Corps where I am assigned as the Director of Legal Operations for Team 2, 78th LSO. My wife Angelica and I have been married for over 28 years and have five children.
As your representative, I will endeavor to keep the respective Bar Associations within our District well informed and will swiftly respond to the issues and concerns of our colleagues who practice in our District. I appreciate your vote.
