About Me

I was born and raised in the Tacoma area.  After graduating from the University of Washington I attended law school at the Universtity of Puget Sound (Cum Laude).  While in law school I was an associate editor of the law review.  While in law school I began to intern in a criminal defense firm.  I enjoyed that work so much, I opened my own practice in 1997.  Since that time i have been proudly serving client in all criminal matters.
