About Me

I enjoy representing individuals and businesses involved in disputes.  I work with my clients so I can understand the facts and advise them of their legal rights and risks.  We work together to come up with a plan that makes economic and legal sense and then put that plan in place.


In 2002 Washington Law and Politics Magazine recognized me as a "Rising Star." 


I have handled cases in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Thurston, Grays Harbor and Grant County.



I recently completed a forty hour mediation skills training session and look forward to assisting parties, as a mediator, in resolving their disputes.
