About me

Experienced employment attorney and trial advocate, I seek to efficiently resolve the employment questions and disputes that may threaten not only the bottom line but the delicate balance of any workplace.  I have benefited from practicing within one of the largest firms in the Pacific Northwest and a preeminent national labor/employment firm, and apply the skills I gained at these firms to employers and businesses of all sizes and cultures.
