About Me

My career has focused on Oregon's appeals system.  I worked as a research attorney in the Oregon Court of Appeals, as a senior deputy for the State Public Defender, and in private practice since 2002.  I've represented clients in over 1200 cases in Oregon's Court of Appeals and Supreme Court, including criminal appeals, parole appeals, appeals in stalking cases, domestic relations appeals and appeals in other civil cases.  If you have an Oregon case that needs to be appealed, I have the experience your case deserves.
