About me

I am a criminal defense attorney, practicing primarily in Pierce, King and Thurston Counties. I have successfully defended clients throughout western washington and central washington. Most of my cases are resolved via negotiations, however when negotiations fail, then I am willing to fight for my clients in trial.
