About Me

I am a general practice attorney with an emphasis on business matters and landlord tenant matters in Spokane, Washington. I do not handle criminal or family law matters. My focus for small business representation includes entity formation, business transactions and corporate litigation. My landlord tenant practice is focused mainly on landlord representation including residential and commercial evictions, lease creation, and legal compliance issues.
