About me

I am an attorney who lives and works in  Seattle, Washington.  Specifically, West Seattle, a suburb of Seattle.  I retired from the Army as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1988 and have built my private practice for the last 20 years in West Seattle.  I limit my practice to Real Estate matters, Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts and Elder Law.


I enjoy hiking.  I have climbed Mt Rainier twice, Mt Baker once and Mt. Kilimanjaro once.  None of these are technical climbs - and I doubt I will ever do a really technical climb.  No Mount Everest climbs are in my future.  I recently learned to swim and have done several short triathlons.  My goal is to remain fit forever, though my predisposition to doughnuts and cookies makes that a forever challenge.
