About Me

I am a trial lawyer with over 100 cases argued to verdict in high stakes civil and criminal cases, both before juries and courts of appeals. 


 


I am experienced, and I work on some of the most important cases of their time.  Cases range from record jury verdicts, 9th Circuit arguments, including George Clinton's copyrights, Washington State Supreme Court arguments regarding Constitutional Rights, medical malpractice, brain injury, white collar federal offenses, and Murder in the First Degree.  


 


I am recognized by my peers as in the top 5% "Super Lawyer."  In 2013 I was awarded Plaintiffs Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Washington Defense Trial Lawyers, and in 2006 Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Trial Lawyers College.  I am recognized as a "Top 100 Trial Lawyer," by National Trial Lawyers.  I teach at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College, Washington State Bar Association, Washington State Association for Justice, and other associations.
