About me

Thank you for reviewing my information.


I maintain my practice in northern Nevada and northern California.  Besides a general law practice I am a court-appointed arbitrator/mediator for the courts in northern Nevada and the Lake Tahoe area of California. I also maintain a private arbitration/mediation practice.

I serve on the Board of Directors of the Benchmark Institute which is a training center devoted to providing substantive and skills training to public interest lawyers and paralegals. I also serve on the Board of Directors of the Carson Valley Community Theater which is a local non-profit theater group.
