For over 5 years I served as a Deputy District Attorney in 2 of Oregon's busiest DA's offices. I prosecuted countless cases, including being the lead trial prosecutor in over criminal 100 trials, the majority of which were jury trials. I charged, negotiated, and tried every kind of DUI case imaginable and many other types of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases.
I also gained experience as the supervising attorney for the Gresham branch of the Support Enforcement Division, where I advised collections agents on how to establish, modify, and enforce child support orders. I also decided when to file criminal charges to go after somebody who wasn't paying their child or spousal support order.
My practice is primarily focused on helping clients pursue divorces, property division, and custody/parenting time disputes. I work hard with clients to reach negotiated settlements when possible, and use my significant trial experience to fight in court when necessary. I also help protect clients faced with low level criminal charges, so they can get their lives back on track.
