About me

As of 2014, I have moved to Bainbridge Island and have changed my practice to focus mainly on family law appeals (the step after trial) and discrimination in education issues. Discrimination in education issues focus on sex/gender, sexual orientation, sexual harassment, discrimination, intimidation, bullying. I assist parents and students in working with the schools to provide solutions that create a safe environment for students who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, bullying, harassment, etc. I also assist parents and *trans students in working with schools in understanding how to respecfully handle a student who transitions gender and ensures that the student continues to recieve a full and equal educational experience. 

I continue to assist on child support matters and low-conflict dissolutions.
