About Me

Available throughout Washington State. 

Main Practice Areas:

  • Litigation of Asset Forfeiture Claims

  • Defense of Drug-Related Criminal Charges

  • Vacation/Nullification of Prior Convictions

  • Restoration of Firearm Possession Rights

 I've had a passion for keeping our government within its own limits since childhood.  I first considered becoming a lawyer upon learning about the works of the ACLU and NORML as a teen.  Went the long way around getting here, but determination is probably my #1 strength.

My practice centers around defending those charged with drug-related offenses and retreiving any property law enforcement may have seized.  I help the victims of our government's War on Drugs recover from the injuries inflicted upon them.
