I have always been an entrepreneur. I had a lemonade stand at age 5, and by age 10 I started my own yard care business, Nicky's Lawnmowing Service. By middle school I was distributing a patented velcro product that my Uncle had made. In high school I helped manage the Student Store, joined the Marketing Club, and was President of Garfield High's chapter of DECA, an international business organization for students. I went on to major in Economics at Columbia University, and then returned to Seattle for law school and to be with my family. I graduated from UW Law with a juris doctor as well as a Masters of Laws in Taxation. In law school, I quickly discovered that it was unusual for a law student to enjoy working in Excel and manipulating numbers. I got hooked on business and tax classes.
I really enjoy running a small business - our law firm. I get to talk with clients every day and understand their legal needs. I also love technology and the way it is helping lawyers deliver legal services faster and better. I would love the opportunity to talk to you about the challenges you face and how I could help.
Seattle has been my home for nearly 3 decades. I love the seasons in Seattle, especially winter. My law partner (also my father) and I curl together at the Granite Curling Club in North Seattle. I also love to snowboard, usually at Steven's Pass. And I enjoy hiking and snowshoeing on Mt. Rainier. I know there are a lot of newcomers to Seattle as technology has created tremendous job growth, and I hope we can all adjust as Puget Sound becomes a Region of Boom.
