About Me

I earned my law degree and graduated cum laude from
Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College (Portland, OR) in
1985. I majored in Political Science and graduated with a Bachelor of
Arts degree from the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in 1982, and
graduated from Jesuit High School (Portland, OR) in 1978.


 


I worked for a mid-size Portland, Oregon, law firm immediately after
graduating from law school and passing the bar exam in 1985. Ultimately
I opened my own office in Clackamas County, Oregon, on October 1, 1988,
where I have been since. My office is located in the historic
McLoughlin Neighborhood of old Oregon City in a home built in 1920,
which my wife and I remodeled to be accurate to that era. Out of the
comfortable setting of that old home I strive to maintain a general
practice which meets the diverse needs of my many clients, as I
represent a broad clientele in many locations in the State of Oregon.


 


I have lived all my life in Oregon and am a sixth generation
Oregonian whose great-great-great grandfather crossed the plains in a
covered wagon in 1848, ultimately settling near Belfountain, Oregon,
which was then known as the Belknap Settlement. I take great pride in
my old Oregon roots and devote much of my spare time to genealogy work.


 


I have been married to my wife, Barbara, since 1985. We have two
grown children, Jessica and Rebecca. We live on a farm between
Wilsonville and Newberg with our menagerie of animals, which consists of
horses, cats, and a dog.
