About me

As a new transplant to the TriCities area, I am enjoying getting to know the area and it's people.  I am also adjusting to suburbia after spending the last ten years on a forty acre farm in Stevens County where I was managing partner to a civil litigation firm with multiple offices. 

With undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology I love working with people and empowering them to create solutions for themselves. 

The two most important qualities in my life are my integrity and my honesty.  I am a bit of a white knight and my hobbies reflect that.  I have studied multiple martial arts for years, taught fencing in college and participated in tournaments with swords. I have taught self defense courses.   I am probably most comfortable using tools and implements created before 1800.  This might be a direct result of growing up in Western Massachusetts on a two hundred acre farm. 

Probably the most interesting tidbits about me is that Tom Clancy included me as a character in one of his books.  Or perhaps it's that I have worked with exotic cats off and on for years. 

Currently I am focusing on family law and looking forward to contributing to the legal community here.
