I am of counsel at the law firm of Frey Buck, P.S. I have a widely varied general litigation practice, with emphasis on property/title disputes, defense of governmental agencies and officers for allegations of police misconduct and civil rights violations and in inquest proceedings following officer-involved fatalities. My practice also includes estate planning, probate administration and probate litigation.
I offer discounts to law enforcement officers and CLC members. I have served as a law school student mentor through the King County Washington Women Lawyers and have been a guest lecturer for Pretrial Advocacy at Seattle University School of Law. I developed a training program to assist officers in dealing with officer involved-fatalities and am a certified force analyst through the Force Science Institute, Ltd.
I have 5 times been named a “Rising Star” by Washington Law & Politics and present on probate topics for continuing legal education. I currently serve on the non-profit boards of REST - Real Escape from the Sex Trade and Waterfront Landings, Home Owner's Association.
Prior to attending law school, I worked for seven years in the insurance industry, the majority as an insurance fraud investigator. I was very involved in the Puget Sound Special Investigators Association (P.S.S.I.) and obtained my Fraud Claims Law Specialist designation, eventually leading to law school.
I was born and raised in Minnesota and migrated to the Pacific Northwest after graduating from the University of Minnesota-Duluth with a degree in Criminology.
My passion is traveling as often as possible, with the goal of a new country every year. Although a novice, I love to photograph my travels. I previously served on my church advisory council and have been involved in women's and youth ministries, participating as a leader on missions to a Jamaican school for the deaf; to San Luis Potosi, Mexico with an inner-city ministry team; and Biloxi, Mississippi to assist with hurricane relief efforts.
