About me

I attended law school at the University of Missouri in Kansas City after obtaining my bachelor's degree in geology at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS.  I worked for a while in environmental construction consulting before attending law school.  I was a technical editor of my law review, and won the American Jurisprudence prize my third year.  I joined the law firm of Sandler, Balkin, Weinstein & Witten, PC in Kansas City and immediately gained civil trial experience in construction, surety, employment and other civil litigation.  I also became licensed in Kansas, as many attorneys on the western edge of Missouri do.  I practiced in Missouri with the same firm until 1997, when I moved to Alaska and joined a firm in Anchorage, still concentrating on construction, surety, employment and general business litigation.  My family was transferred to New Jersey and I practiced with a firm there handling primarily construction liens, before another transfer to Seattle in 2001.  I worked with a large construction law firm until I left to travel with my daughter before she started school.  We enjoyed international travel for almost a year, and I returned to the South King County area and started my own firm.  I enjoy both litigation and mediation, and I have a sincere concern for the costs of litigation for ordinary small businesses and individuals.  My focus is on a prompt resolution, with a wholistic approach to the entire problem (if the contract got you into litigation, let's address that, too, for example).  You can learn more about me on my website:
