Most Memorable Case?
When I was in law school, I was forced to sue my landlord in San Diego County Court. He wouldn’t return my deposit. It was the first time I had been in a real court as a new attorney. I was fully prepared for every question the judge was going to ask and every answer the landlord was going to say. I won. 15 years later, after winning dozens of much bigger cases, it’s still my favorite case.
What Makes You a Good Divorce Attorney?
I am over prepared, maybe to a fault. Like in the lawsuit involving my landlord in law school, I prepare for every possible situation or scenario. I want to have thought out every question that can be asked, and every answer that can be given.
