About me

For over 30 years I have focused my practice on employment law advising businesses on strategic employment matters such as hiring, firing, discipline, and leave laws.  I have developed expertise in diverse employment issues ranging from negotiating employment agreements to the defense of employment discrimination, wrongful termination, and breach of contract litigation in state and federal court and labor agencies.  I also conduct employment training and independent investigations of workplace conduct.  Aside from my career as  a seasoned employment attorney, I have lived in the Seattle area for 30 years and believe in making time for your community.  Recently, I have been involved in a Children’s Hospital support group for parents coping with anxious children.  I also enjoy traveling with my family,  eating at my favorite restaurant Joule, and watching my two children become accomplished competitive rock climbers.
