About Me

I've been practicing law for over ten years, most of it in Thurston County, but also including Mason and Lewis Counties. Family law has always been my emphasis. 


Client satisfaction is my top priority. I am highly accessible at all times, whether it be by email or telephone. I return every client's call promptly. I'm also mindful of the financial impact the case has on the client - hiring a lawyer is expensive, but it should also be reasonable.


I love what I do and consider myself fortunate to be in a profession that allows me to help people in such a profound way. In my free time, I enjoy reading, listening to music, and vigorously pursuing various fantasy baseball or football league championships. I live in Olympia with my wife and two children.
