After graduating law school in 2004, I clerked for an amazing judge for two years, then worked at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP for several years before starting my own law firm in 2010. You can read more details of my professional experience below.
I have focused my practice on trusts and estates for most of my legal career. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their families and goals. My practice lets me do interesting substantive work and meet people from many walks of life. The most rewarding part of my practice is sharing with my clients that rare feeling of getting an important and oft-neglected "to do" off the list.
My personal background lends well to this practice. I understand how unexpected life can be. I have broad cultural exposure, having lived in Iran, Pakistan, England, Hong Kong, and several of the United States. I also have varied professional skills - I started out in engineering and worked at The Boeing Company for several years then moved to the law. And then, I had a difficult medical scare, and had to pause my career for a couple of years. To reboot, I changed focus and worked at Amazon.com for a year. I am now back to the satisfying work of estate law.
I live in Bellevue with my two sons and our puppy, Teddo. Teddo comes to the office with me most days, and he looks forward to meeting you as well. He's great to diffuse the tension of the planning process.
I look forward to meeting you and talking with you about your life and goals. Let's work together to build a little peace of mind.
