About Me

I am married to my lovely wife Kate. She and I are raising three active little boys ages 10,11 and 13. We are both involved in their school and sports activities. We love to ski at Mt. Spokane on the winter weekends and we love boating in the summer months.


I love practicing law and helping people who are injured by accidents or medical malpractce navigate the legal system and the insurance system.  


I practice law with the philosphy of treating everyone I encounter with respect, regardless of issues of fault.
