About me

I am managing member of Strasser Law and Resolution LLC, providing legal, mediation, and arbitration services ( After receiving a law degree from Seattle University in 1995, my fifteen year engineering career gave way to a new life in the practice of law. Following a one-year judicial internship with the United States District Court, Western Washington, I joined Lane Powell pc in Seattle, representing public and private clients in contract drafting and negotiations, pre-litigation dispute resolution, and litigation matters. Answering my predisposition as a problem solver, I formed Strasser Law and Resolution LLC in 2012, focusing on providing mediation and legal services.

In my spare time, I enjoy bicycling, skate-skiing, hiking, motorcycling, building things, writing, and spending time with my wife Brenda and our children and grandchildren.
