About Me

I have been in private practice since 1988 and have extensive background and experience in all phases of insurance defense litigation. I am currently a member of the Washington State Bar Association, Tacoma/Pierce County Bar Association, Washington Defense Trial Lawyers Association and the Seattle Claims Adjusters Association. I also regularly serve as an arbitrator in MAR and UIM arbitrations.
