Preston assists clients in family law matters, including spousal support, child support, child custody, enforcement of marital settlement agreements, and domestic violence restraining orders. Preston also assists in elder law litigation including trust and estate litigation and elder abuse.
Prior to joining Mr. Kopper in Davis, Preston practiced law at Downey Brand, the Sacramento area’s largest law firm.
Preston's previous experience includes participation in the representation of international, national, and regional businesses as well as individuals, in a variety of areas including intellectual property litigation, breach of fiduciary duties, deceptive business practices, and covenants not to compete.
Although Preston thoroughly understands the process of civil litigation, he appreciates that the best solutions are the ones the parties, with assistance of qualified counsel, seek out themselves. Preston saw the value of alternative dispute resolution as a law clerk to a federal magistrate judge, where he attended and participated in numerous mediations.
Preston graduated from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, earning spots on the Deans List, Traynor Honors Society, and Order of the Coif. In his last year of school, he took first place in a national moot court competition in intellectual property held in Washington D.C. After law school, he served as a law clerk to two federal judges, Magistrate Judge Valerie P. Cooke of the United States District Court, District of Nevada and the Honorable Procter R. Hug, III of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Preston, his wife, and his two children have proudly made Davis their home. He enjoys swimming as part of the Davis Aquatic Masters and has even braved the chilly waters of the bay to escape from Alcatraz.
