I earned my law degree and graduated cum laude from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College (Portland, OR) in 1985. I majored in Political Science and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR) in 1982, and graduated from Jesuit High School (Portland, OR) in 1978.
I worked for a mid-size Portland, Oregon, law firm immediately after graduating from law school and passing the bar exam in 1985. Ultimately I opened my own office in Clackamas County, Oregon, on October 1, 1988, where I have been since. My office is located in the historic McLoughlin Neighborhood of old Oregon City in a home built in 1920, which my wife and I remodeled to be accurate to that era. Out of the comfortable setting of that old home I strive to maintain a general practice which meets the diverse needs of my many clients, as I represent a broad clientele in many locations in the State of Oregon.
I have lived all my life in Oregon and am a sixth generation Oregonian whose great-great-great grandfather crossed the plains in a covered wagon in 1848, ultimately settling near Belfountain, Oregon, which was then known as the Belknap Settlement. I take great pride in my old Oregon roots and devote much of my spare time to genealogy work.
I have been married to my wife, Barbara, since 1985. We have two grown children, Jessica and Rebecca. We live on a farm between Wilsonville and Newberg with our menagerie of animals, which consists of horses, cats, and a dog.
