I am a San Francisco attorney practicing in the areas of civl and criminal appeals and complex civil litigation. Prior to coming to the City in 2000, I was a judicial staff attorney for the California Court of Appeal in Riverside, California.

This weblog is devoted mostly to the issues of criminal law, First Amendment, intellectual property, environmental law, international law, and consumer litigation. Also, from time to time, I write about what is going on with the U.S. Supreme Court.
