I have 20 years experience as a deputy public defender, 18 of those in the Contra Costa County Public Defenders Office. I have worked as a supervising attorney in the Contra Costa County Public Defenders Office for more than four years. In my career I have performed more than 150 criminal jury trials. I have represented citizens accused of every variety of crimes ranging from felonies, misdemeanors to juvenile delinquency. I graduated from University of California-Berkeley in 1986. I attended law school at the University of California-Hastings College of Law, graduating in 1989. I am honored to be a member of the dedicated, hard-working, resourceful, committed group of women and men of the Contra Costa County Public Defenders Office.
