About me

Throughout my professional career, I have successfully represented companies of every size, from Fortune 100 and 500 companies to small family operations in finding solutions to complicated business problems.  I have a broad based business litigation practice and experience and have successfully represented clients in such diverse industry groups as telecommunications, publishing/media, construction, restaurant/ hospitality services, transportation and retailing.  Representative clients include AT&T, Avaya, CAMAS America, Digital First Media (Denver Post), Gannett (Arizona Republic and Republic Media), Freedom Communications, Jones International, Qwest and formerly, US West, Time Warner Cable.


On a personal level, my interests include scuba diving, golf, horseback riding, hiking and travel generally.
