Since 2004, I have taught courses in Torts, Contracts and Civil Litigation, among others, at the University of California, Irvine’s ABA-accredited Paralegal Certificate Program. In 2012, I received the University’s Distinguished Instructor Award and am currently on the Program’s Advisory Committee.

I am the founder of CrossCourt Law, PC, in Orange County, California (http://www.CrossCourtlaw.com). With over 20 years of business law experience in Southern California, I am general counsel to small and medium companies and institutions transacting business locally, nationally and globally. As such, I manage clients’ day-to-day legal affairs including those related to contract negotiation and formation, labor and employment, corporate governance, liability prevention, and real estate.

My approach is to quickly and efficiently solve legal problems as they arise and implement proactive policies and contractual measures to reduce their occurrence. When litigation arises, I handle every step from pleadings and discovery through to resolution via settlement, arbitration, or trial.

I have been admitted to practice before the California State Bar as well as the Federal Northern, Central, Eastern, and Southern Districts of California, and also before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Finally, on a more personal level, I am a devoted husband and father of two very active boys. The spare time I have is spent playing tennis, volunteering as a high school mock trial coach, and attempting ill-fated household handyman projects.
