About me

 I take pride in helping good people through tough situations.

No matter what challenge you face - from a minor misdemeanor to a major felony, or a minor injury to catastrophic damage, I want to help you.


Experience matters.  In 2015, my peers elected me as the youngest-ever President of the entire Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers' Association.  As a former prosecutor, I have litigated hundreds of cases, and handled thousands more.   When your future or your family is on the line, you need an attorney who is comfortable and effective in the courtroom.  My staff and I will work tirelessly to get you the result you need. 

Whether you face a criminal charge or an injury to yourself or a loved one, there's lots to be done.  Call me today -  let's get to work.
