About Me

I am a Washington-native, and am very happy to be back "home" after living in Nevada for a decade.  As a practicing attorney, I am in my third career, which followed a decade in advertising sales and then another career in the environmental field.  Both prior careers prepared me for my legal practice.  In advertising sales, I learned to comfortably communicate with anyone and everyone and to listen to my client's needs. In the environmental and regulatory field, I learned the art of negotiating and the importance of meeting numerous and competing deadlines.


Currently I split my time between Las Vegas and the greater Puget Sound area. My legal practice is primarily transactional in nature, and I prefer to help my clients stay out of the courtroom and avoid expensive litigation by properly preparing their contracts and other business dealings. 


I fill my "spare time" with family, friends, and my beautiful dog, Joy. I volunteer for a number of charitable organizations, and I love cooking, Zumba classes and weight lifting!


Oh ... and by the way ... my clients are important to me, and I return their phone calls!

    Jan was a classmate of mine at UNLV. Her thorough understanding of the law and insightful contributions to class discussions were a benefit to all of her classmates. I can only think that she brings the same level of enthusiasm to her profession and dedication to representing her clients.
