Brief
Thumbnail:


I had served in the Suerior Court for 30 years before my retirement in 2003. 10 as commissioner, mostly in porbate, and 20 as a judge. As judge, I was called upon to handle every sort of civil case in the court and was appointed as the statewide coodination judge in a complex environmental/product liability class action. I have taught at CEB, NITA, Rutter Group, Hasting School of Advocacy and The California Judicial College. I have tried in that 30 years, over 1000 court trials. Since retirement I have participated in 50 mediations and 30 arbitrations, at one time I had 18 successful mediations in a row.
