About me

I teach law students at the University of California, Berkeley. School of Law (Boalt).

I was hired in the late nineties by Federal Judge Jeffrey White to teach his civil law students the skills of courtroom presentation. I have been working with advocacy students using a one on one coaching method ever since. Guest judges who preside over our student final trials say they are more effective than the professional lawyers who come into their own courtrooms!

I also coach practicing attorneys individually and in classes at firms like Cooley Godward and Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe. I also work with politicians, business people,teachers and actors.

I have been an award winning theatre director for 23 years.
