Cheryl C. Rouse
In 1984, I began practicing law in San Francisco. Practicing law, while not all there is in my life, affords me the opportunity to do what I like to do best -- help people solve their problems and meet the challenges of living in our complex society.
The Bay Area is in the eye of the storm of progress that has accelerated in the past few years. "Silicon Valley," "Internet," "Pacific Rim," all conjure up images of incredible pace, rapid-fire change, and infinite opportunities. Given the richness and complexity of life that we lead in the Bay Area, it is almost inevitable that we will face legal challenges that require the assistance of an attorney. If you have need of legal advice and counsel, I invite you to call or e-mail either of us to discuss how we might be able to help you.
Regarding my qualifications, I was admitted to the California
Bar and the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California in
1985; U.S. District Court, Central District of California and the Ninth
Circuit Court of Appeals in 1986; and the U.S. District Courts for the
Eastern and Southern Districts of California in 1990. I graduated from
Golden Gate University School of Law, San Francisco, California in
1984, where I was Associate Editor of Law Review. I graduated from
Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois in 1980 with a B.A., Cum
Laude, in History & Literature of Religions, Honors Program.
Norman P. Bahlert
I have been practicing law for over 25 years. I am admitted to practice law in the states of New York (1975) and California (1988). I graduated from Fordham Law School in New York City in June, 1974. After being admitted to the New York Bar, I practiced law primarily in the areas of estate planning, real estate, banking and litigation. In 1986, I moved my family to California and was appointed Managing Counsel for litigation in First Nationwide Bank's Legal Department. Since Cheryl Rouse and I opened our law offices in San Francisco in 1995, I have concentrated my practice in estate planning and litigation.
