About me

My practice focuses on commercial litigation and product liability defense.  I have been a litigation attorney in the Puget Sound region since 1995.  I began my career as a civil and criminal prosecutor with the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office, where I obtained extensive trial experience. Since joining Keller Rohrback L.L.P. in 1998, I have litigated complex commercial cases for businesses and financial institutions including Wells Fargo, Service Corporation International, Pacific Northwest Bank, Washington First International Bank, and Columbia Trust Bank.  I also have successfully defended automotive product liability cases for Ford Motor Company, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Toyota Motor Corporation, Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc., and New Holland North America, Inc.
