About Me

I am lucky enough to practice law and live in one of the most beautiful places in the world--Humboldt County, California.  Born and raised here,  I traveled quite a bit as a young adult but returned home in 2007 to work and raise my family here.  Practicing law in a small community results in a diverse and satisfying practice.
