About Me

My philosophy in my law practice is to treat the client the way I would like to be treated.  I know that many of my clients are going through one of the most emotional times they have ever experienced, and it is important to them that the person representing them have the experience, knowledge, and character to get the job done well.  I understand the decisions made in each individual case have enormous consequences.  I will do my best to find solutions that protect my client's interests and future.


 


If you would like to discuss your family law matter with me, please contact me at 503-726-5207 to schedule a one hour consultation for just $100.  I hope to help you get the solutions you need.
