About Me

My practice includes environmental regulatory work and litigation, as well as commercial litigation and resolving business disputes.  I have successfully represented individuals, corporations, and tribes in litigation at administrative hearings and in trial and appellate courts. My litigation practice has particular emphasis on commercial disputes, insurance, real estate, environmental, land use and Indian law. My environmental work involves RCRA, CERCLA (including Natural Resource Damage claims), Model Toxics Control Act, Clean Water Act, SEPA/NEPA and water rights. I have experience litigating in both state and federal courts, as well as arbitration. I also speak fluent Russian and I have volunteered for immigration clients who are domestic violence victims seeking legal status in United States as well as for low-income clients whose cars were impounded.
