About Me

Helping people has been my primary motivation for practicing law. Which is why my practice is focused on those areas where people truly need an advocate on their side: Bankruptcy, Traffic, Criminal, and DUI Defense.


Providing excellent service and getting results requires hard work, an attention to detail, and preparation. Other attorneys talk, but I am focused on getting favorable outcomes for my clients. I strive to obtain the right result for each client no difficult it may be.I take pride in serving my clients and community well. I grew here in Port Townsend, attended Port Townsend High School and graduated in 1999. I chose to practice law here because this is the area I love and the people I care about.


I have an aggressive and innovative approach to the interpretation of the traffic code, the criminal and DUI laws in Washington State, and Federal bankruptcy law. I have successfully represented and defended my clients throughout Western Washington, including Jefferson, Clallam , and Kitsap County.


Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, our daughter, and our French Bulldog. I’m also enjoy giving back to the community through the Port Townsend Rotary Club and coaching the PTHS Mock Trial Team. I’m a huge fan of Seattle sports, especially the Seahawks!
