About Me

I have practiced in Oregon, California, Alaska, and briefly interned in Australia and New Zealand.  I have 25 years of civil litigation experience in state and federal trial and appellate courts.  Currently, my primary areas of practice are foreclosure defense and bankruptcy.  As I have a passion to help others, I continually sharpen my knowledge of changes in the law in Oregon and other states to stay on the cutting edge of the foreclosure crisis.


 


I have been actively involved in the community by serving on the Ashland Forest Lands Commission, Medford Planning Commission, and various non-profit boards, such as Mediation Works.  I have been an amateur actor at Oregon Stage Works and Camelot Theatre.  I love to travel, garden, practice yoga, and enjoy plays, concerts, and movies.
