About Me

I have been practicing  bankruptcy law since 1979 in both Eastern and Western Washington.  In this time I have represented a lot of clients. When I am not working I enjoy travel (I have lived in both Sydney Australia and Rio de Janeiro Brazil) sports, a good dinner and a nice bottle of wine. A good movie or book also get my attention.
