About Me

I was licensed to practice law in Michigan from 1983 to 1991.  I then moved to Washington and spent a couple of years in non-profit administration before returning to the practice of law in 1995.  I have always been fascinated by the medical aspects of personal injury and disablity cases.  Learning how the body and mind work together, particularly in response to trauma.
