About Me

I am a seasoned attorney with substantial experience in all aspects of civil and criminal trial work, including jury trials, bench trials, and administrative hearings. 


Being an attorney gives me the skills to empower people who have been victimized, whether by another person or business or government entity.  Justice should not be an abstract concept but a daily reality.  Although there are no guarantees in the legal system, I will do my absolute best to give my clients the best possible outcome.  


With litigation, I enjoy court appearances as well as research and writing. My favorite aspect of a case is unraveling a puzzle, building a case on paper using applicable legal authority.

Transactional law allows me to tend to the details.  I appreciate the opportunity to create and refine all types of contracts and family property agreements, including Washington State domestic partnership agreements.

I am licensed to practice law in Washington, Idaho, and California.
