Company Name: Orange County District Attorney's Office

Recent Professional Accomplishment: My most recent career highlight is being counsel for the People in a case currently pending before the California Supreme Court.  I was counsel on three published opinions from the Court of Appeal, including two addressing the prosecution of fraud cases. Having nearly 10 years of civil experience prior to becoming a prosecutor gave me a particular passion about criminal fraud cases. I have tried over 50 criminal trials in my nearly 22 years as a prosecutor.

Fun Fact About Me: I was born in Hungary and moved to the United States with my family when I was 8 years old. I love to travel and experience different cultures. I have visited 17 countries so far. Pretty much any country is on my bucket list!

Philanthropic Interests: I am a sustaining member of Junior League of Orange County. I am a volunteer usher for South Coast Repertory Theater. I like to focus my volunteerism toward the arts and child abuse prevention.

Practice Area: Criminal Prosecution - Motions, Writs and Appeals
