My practice primarily emphasizes transactions, litigation, arbitration and mediation on behalf of companies and individuals involved in the construction and real estate industries. I represent general contractors, subcontractors, engineers, and design professionals in a wide range of matters relating to mechanic's liens, stop notices, construction failures, latent defects, general contract and bidding disputes and professional liability.
Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a general contractor in Missouri for over twenty years. My extensive construction background is a great advantage when assessing a client's case, and during mediation, arbitration and trial. Clients do not have to spend time and money educating me on the construction aspects of their case.
I hold the following California construction licenses: A - General Engineering Contractor, B - General Building Contractor, C-8 - Concrete, C-10 - Electrical, C-20 - Warm Air Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning, and C-36 - Plumbing.
I was a Missouri real estate broker for seventeen years, and I have been a California real estate broker since 1995. I represent real estate agents and real estate brokers in various matters.
I am an avid outdoorsman and photographer. I graduated from the Clearwater Guide School and have been a licensed fly fishing guide since 1995. I guide in Northern California on Lewiston Lake and the Trinity River.
In 2008, I was appointed to the Trinity Adaptive Management Working Group by Dirk Kempthorne, the Secretary of the Interior.
