About me

I am an attorney focused on bankruptcy representation for people who need a fresh start.  I worked for several years as an attorney in downtown Seattle law firms before opening my own firm.  I handled my first bankrupcty case  in 1992.  I have offices in Issaquah and North Bend.


I understand the financial difficulties that people face from too much debt.  Bankruptcy law is complicated and I focus on guiding people through the process so that they can start to turn their lives around.


I'm also experienced at litigating insurance bad faith cases in both Washington State and Federal Courts.  My bad faith insurance practice is focused on property insurance and I handle claims involving the Insurance Fair Conduct Act (IFCA).  I have significant experience working for insurance companies in property insurance.


I was born in Auburn and grew up in Covington.  I graduated from West Point with a bachelor's degree and then served as an officer in the US Army, including an assignment at Ft. Lewis (now JBLM). After leaving the Army as a Captain, I attended and graduated from law school at Arizona State University before moving back to Washington and starting to practice law in 1991.
