About me

I am an Oregon and Washington attorney committed to passionate and zealous representation of my clients.

I am an Adjunct Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Portland State University.  After having worked as a drug and alcohol counselor for the Oregon Judicial Department, and as President of Clark County Family Law Section, I know that people can makes mistakes, but that they need a strong lawyer to help them through the difficult and personal journey of criminal defense, a divorce, employment discrimination.  

Thank you.
