About me

Since 1984 I have has devoted my law practice to help victims and their families who have suffered injuries as a result of the negligence of corporations and careless individuals.  


 


In my free time I like travel with my wife, spend time with my family and, if the weather is good, fly to new destinations in the Pacific Northewest.
