About Me

I am a Seattle lawyer with almost 30 years of experience in real estate, finance, partnerships, LLCs, and general business matters. I achieve results through careful analysis of issues, good listening, creative consideration of alternatives, reasoned selection of solutions and strategies, well organized plain English documentation, attention to the psychology underlying a business transaction, skillful persuasion when necessary, and quick implementation. Please call me. Thanks
