Per aspera ad astra. Latin. English translation: through difficulties to the stars. We guide clients through disputes to achieve great results. As a Founding Partner of Ad Astra Law Group, LLP, I help clients resolve disputes in the most cost-effective and practical manner possible. My team and I are all experienced litigators who can take a case through trial and appeal, but also recognize the value of settlement. Most of my clients are small business owners and all of their disputes end up being "bet the company" litigation. I help business owners who have disputes with their business partners, breach of contract issues, or computer fraud and abuse matters. Individuals with real estate disputes can also benefit from my experience with broker malfeasance and deals-gone-bad cases. I am a fierce but friendly attorney dedicated protecting and advancing my clients' interests. I received a top notch legal education and spent the first three years of my practice as a litigation associate at Nossaman, LLP, a respected big firm where I learned from some of the finest lawyers in California. Since receiving great training at Nossaman, I have used the skills I developed there to serve my clients more directly in a small firm capacity. Most recently, I've developed a cannabis business litigation practice where I help businesses in the cannabis industry deal with breach of contract issues, partnership disputes, employment law problems, and real estate disputes. My practice is industry-agnostic, but I do quite enjoy helping the legal cannabis effort by servicing business owners on the green frontier.
