About me

I work to protect your rights through negotiation and litigation. Not every case is right for trial and it takes an experienced litigator to know if the best case resolution will be reached through negotiation or through trial. I spent over four years working as a prosecutor at the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. In fact, I started working there in law school as a certified law student. By the time I took the bar exam, I had tried approximately 30 cases before a judge or jury. That’s more than some attorneys try in their entire career. By the time I left the DA’s office, I had tried nearly 100 cases before a judge or jury.


I handle all of my cases personally and place the utmost importance on being personally available to my clients. Usually, if you call me, you’ll reach me. If you don’t for any reason, I’ll get back to you the same day. It’s that simple. I’m happy to schedule a time to meet with you for a complimentary case consultation. You won’t get a high-pressure sales pitch from me, only information and my honest opinion about the best way to proceed.


 believe every client has a right to compassionate, skillful and aggressive representation. I also believe every client should have an attorney they can reach on the phone or meet with in person when they want information.
