About David

I have shown proven results in writing comprehensive sentencing assessments that provide well-rounded recommendations, using previous professional training and experience, including life experience that allows me to relate to clientele. 

 

I was a probation corrections officer from 2003-2005 working in detention facilities. Between 2005-2013, I wrote hundreds of reports for low and high-risk juveniles and adults. In 2008, I was assigned as a juvenile and adult investigator until 2013 and performed the duties of a court officer in Blythe, California, and as a drug court officer in the Recovery Opportunity Center. 

From 2013 to 2018, I was a Supervising Probation Officer. During the better part of those years, I supervised the field and investigative operations of the Palm Springs Probation office, which included Drug Court, Wraparound, and Sex Offender caseloads.

I wrote adult sentencing and juvenile dispositional reports for the better part of my career. I have been trained in court testifying, determinate sentencing, and credit for time served. In addition, I’ve learned motivational interviewing techniques and evidence-based practices to assist in the rehabilitation of a defendant on probation.
