After almost 17 years with Farmers Insurance Company Staff Counsel, I opened a small law office oriented to providing legal service to the local… read more community. From 1996 to 2009 I was the managing attorney of the Inland Empire Branch Legal Office of Farmers. In addition to managing the office I carried an active and challenging caseload. Prior to Farmers, I was a litigation attorney with the local firms of Bell, Orrock & Watase (now Orrock, Popka, Fortino, Tucker & Dolen); Thompson & Colegate; Heiting and Irwin; and the Law Offices of Barry Regar. I started my legal career with an Orange County firm, Garrett & Dimino. I rejoined the Orrock office in 2010.
From admission to the practice of law in 1981 I defended clients from claims including: business disputes; fraud; insurance bad faith; employment litigation; personal injury; wrongful death; property damage, habitability, civil rights claims; claims against governmental entities, construction defect claims, medical and dental malpractice claims, product liability and others. I also have extensive experience with Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist claims and their related mediations and binding arbitrations. I am on the judicial arbitration/mediation panel of Riverside County.
