As a Certified Appellate Specialist, I have been asked to lend my insights and experience to numerous legal forums and webinars. I have also provided training and continued learning for both appellate and trial attorneys in California. If you are interested in having me speak about appellate law, family law appeals, or about preparing an appeal at the trial court level, you are welcome to contact me.
Beginning in 2019, I will be posting my webinars, courses, and speaking engagements on this page.
