H. Dennis Beaver, Esq.

Attorney at Law
Author of "You and the Law"

After attending Loyola University School of Law, H. Dennis Beaver joined California's Kern County District Attorney's Office, where he established a Consumer Fraud section. He also became a highly visible presence on local television as legal affairs reporter. He is in the general practice of law and writes a syndicated newspaper column, "You and the Law," carried by a number of papers in Northern California.

Married 41 years to Anne, Beaver has a 39-year-old son and a young grandson. Beaver is fluent in Swedish and French, a language in which he can pass as a native speaker.

"I love law for the reason that I can help people resolve their problems, and my newspaper column reaches so many people in need of down-to-earth advice not colored by how much I am paid. I never charge readers for help," Beaver observes.
