About me

I enjoy arming my clients with all the information they need to make decisions they are satisfied with.  I find great satisfaction in assisting clients to an outcome that I know is better because of my help.  Most insurance companies and their representatives cannot be trusted and will actively mislead clients at their time of greatest need. 


 


My firm is small and I individually handle all cases.  I have staff that assists me with many aspects of case preparation, but I'm involved in every case.  We are not a settlement mill.  If a case needs to be tried to acheive a good result for the client, then I try the case. 


 


I handle cases all over Oregon and would be happy to see if I can help you.  Please feel free to contact my office if you have a need you think I can help with.
