About me

Thank you for visiting my profile.  I attended Whitman College and received a BA in biology, as well as a BA in psychology from the University of Washington, Tacoma.  After undergraduate work, I enrolled at Gonzaga University School of Law and was awarded an Army ROTC scholarship.  I graduated from Gonzaga in May of 2006 and also received a commission in the Washington Army National Guard.


I handle a variety of criminal matters in district and superior court.  At Crary, Clark & Domanico, we keep current with developing case law and statutes.  We have an active and aggressive motion practice, which was at the forefront of the state toxicologist perjury incident and lead to a blanket suppression of BAC results in Spokane County. Furthermore, this firm spearheaded the effort to discredit BAC results, which were generated from a BAC technician who misrepresented his qualifications. As a result, the government elected not to use the BAC results.


I have appeared on Fox and Friends, Good Morning America and various local news stations and have been featured in CNN, Wall Street Journal and made Drudge Report. 


I have been defending citizens from government prosecution since my second year of law school.   If you are in need of legal representation, please contact me for a free consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
