I am an Attorney based in California's Central Valley. I graduated from Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California with a Juris Doctorate.  While there I also obtained a Certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution from the prestigious Straus Institute and was made a national member of The Order of Barristers  for displaying excellence in courtroom advocacy.


While at Pepperdine, I was a member of the Trial Team and won two Western Regional Championships. I was also a contributor to the book "The Art and Science of Trial Advocacy", 2nd Edition (2011)


I received my undergraduate degree from CSU Bakersfield in criminal justice and was a member of the Men's Swimming & Diving Team. I competed in both the 1-meter and 3-meter springboard; was an eight-time All American, and NCAA Division II Champion. 


Also known as "Professor Pendergrass" I enjoy teaching a course in Business Law at California State University, Fresno.
