Sun Tzu, a military general and strategist of ancient China, said, “Win the war and then fight it.” Long before filing a petition, it’s important to know how the whole story fits together—to have every detail accounted for and planned for—because who frames the dispute, who chooses the words that will be used, and who owns the narrative, are the elements of winning the war.Sun Tzu’s words also offer great estate planning advice as well. Anyone can take a form off the Internet and plug in the names. But “plug and play” won’t help later on with a dispute. While my focus is probate and trust litigation, we at Eberts and Brockway prefer to avoid litigation when possible by crafting estate planning documents that will help keep you out of court.

I have been named a 2015 and 2016 Northern California Rising Star by Super Lawyers Magazine. In 2012, I was a San Diego Daily Transcript semifinalist for San Diego Top Attorney, Corporate Litigation.

I am a member of the Trust and Estate Section of both the State Bar of California and the Sonoma County Bar Association. I have been selected to serve on the Sonoma County Probate Bench Bar Committee for 2016 through 2018.

I graduated cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego. While there, I received American Jurisprudence awards in Evidence, Law and Rhetoric, and Advanced Trial Advocacy; I externed with the Honorable Michael H. Watson of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio; and I competed in regional, national, and international mock trial competitions, winning the 2005 ABA Labor & Employment Trial Advocacy Competition in Los Angeles and placing second at the 2006 ABA/John Marshall International Criminal Trial Advocacy Competition in Chicago.

Before coming to Santa Rosa, I spent several years in business litigation, representing clients in cases ranging from eminent domain claims to large public works projects. I’ve argued cases in small municipal courts on up to federal district courts and state courts of appeals. I began my legal career as a prosecutor and, before that, I managed Irish pubs and trained horses. All of these legal and life experiences contribute to my ability as a strategist and litigator in the field of estates and trusts.

How can I help you? By setting the board. In every case, I dig until I find a remedy for your problem and position you in the best possible way to get the best possible result.

I live in Santa Rosa with my wife and law partner, Ann Eberts, and our young son. I enjoy reading, cooking, watching soccer, and being a runner (though not so much the actual running part). The three of us love taking day trips all over the Bay Area.
