About Catherine


I have been in general practice for the past twenty years with my own firm, serving Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo, San Francisco, and Santa Clara counties. Inspired by my father who practiced law for 45 years, I always knew that I wanted to be an attorney. I learned about hard work and integrity from him. I am proud to practice law in the same building he did.

I have lived in the Bay Area all of my life and I raised two children here in Oakland. I am devoted to my community and helping the people who live here.

My experience is diverse and includes jury and judge trials, mediation, arbitration and writing appeals.

I have expertise in family law, probate and civil litigation. My civil litigation experience includes personal injury, landlord tenant, and contract disputes. I have represented clients in DUI and domestic violence matters and I have handled several civil rights cases in federal court.

I handle each case personally. My goal is to offer experienced, competent, and compassionate legal representation to every client.
