About Me

I solve problems for my clients.

 Seattle Litigation Attorney - Business Problems:

Regardless of what type of business you're in, it is not uncommon to run into problems you hadn't anticipated. Let's face it, sometimes even people who used to see things the same way, or thought they did, end up in a dispute. In those situations the legal system gets to be the decision-maker and it is important to have an advocate on your side who can fight for your position. Disputes amongst former business partners can be uncomfortable for clients. Businesses are made of people, and disagreements can cause a lot of stress, not to mention the financial toll. I work hard to earn my clients' trust and try to take as much of the sting out of the process as possible.

Seattle Personal Injury, Malpractice and Insurance

 I help clients who have been injured in serious accidents or in cases of medical malpractice. This involves working with clients to understand how the accident or malpractice affected their lives and then working hard to seek a fair settlement or resolution of their claims from the at fault parties or insurance companies.
