He then set up his own investment management firm and developed an automated computerized trading system that advised and traded in-house client funds in stocks, bonds and commodities.

Working for investment clients, he moved to the far East to manage industrial manufacturing investments. He later moved to California and was admitted to the California Bar in 2003; he first volunteered for, and then worked at, the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, as a trial lawyer in its Eviction Defense Center, thereby gaining extensive litigation and settlement experience in client matters.
