About me

My practice is focused in the areas of banking, secured transactions, general business and real estate. My clients include financial and lending institutions, creditors, business owners and real estate owners.


I have extensive experience handling loan workouts, debt restructuring, and complex commercial loan documentation with emphasis on collateralized loans. I also advise creditors on their rights in insolvency proceedings. I regularly advise clients on judicial and non-judicial foreclosures, replevin actions and other collection remedies. I also have experience with condominium creation and general business matters.


I am also a University of Montana Bertha Morton Scholar and an Adjunct Professor teaching real property in the paralegal program at Spokane Community College.
