About Me


I recently joined the Litigation Team as a Principal at Witherspoon Kelley.  Prior to that I was at Reed & Giesa, P.S. where I was the first female partner in the history of my firm.  My practice includes all phases of commercial litigation in the state and federal courts of Washington and Idaho, including but not limited to: breach of contract, banking and financial matters, employment, non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, trade secrets, trademarks, Condo and Homeowners Association matters, consumer protection, sexual harassment defense, business torts, and construction.  I also handle Washington and Idaho business formations, including filing with the Secretary of State, drafting and review of operating agreements, and serving as a Registered Agent.  In addition, I draft and review employment agreements, non-compete agreements, non-disclosure agreements, and other business documents.
