I've been serving Santa Barbara for 38 years! Here are a few reasons why you should call me first.

Personal Attention - Talk to a lawyer, not secretaries, assistants, or paralegals.

Convenience - You don't have to come to me, I'll come to you. I'll meet you at your home or office. I'll meet you on your schedule.

Fast Service - With some law firms you may have to wait days. In many cases, I can meet with you the same day.
