About me

My practice is devoted entirely to administrative law.  My background as an administrative law judge and attorney practicing law in the private sector gives me the uncommon ability to navigate the difficult currents of government regulations and agency internal practices.  Because administrative law is a unique area of practice, clients are referred to me by other lawyers with less experience in this area. These lawyers appreciate the skills and experience that I bring to resolving clients' problems. Since my practice is narrowly focused, I do not interfere with existing relationships these lawyers may have developed with their clients.


Typical Agencies:

OLCC (Liquor Control) • Lottery • Dentistry • Veterinary • Nursing • Pharmacy • Engineering • Teachers • Real Estate • Construction • Maritime Pilots • Insurance • Attorney General • Therapists • Counselors • Chiropractors  •  Social Workers • Psychologists • Accountants • Architects • Physical and Occupational Therapists


Typical Issues:

  • Licensing (issuance, renewal, revocation)

  • Discipline

  • Civil Penalties

  • Negotiated Settlements


My clients' interests are best served by a fair and impartial administrative justice system.  That means that I not only work diligently for each and every individual client, but I am also committed to improving the overall quality of Oregon's administrative justice system.  I was actively involved in the efforts to create an independent Office of Administrative Hearings that now provides an impartial corps of administrative law judges to preside at contested case hearings.  Also, I was recently appointed by the Oregon State Bar to the advisory group established by the 2009 Legislature for improving the procedural rules for contested case hearings.
