About me

I practice primarily in the areas of estate planning, probate, and business and commercial law, with offices in Gig Harbor, Washington.


I was raised in Tacoma, Washington. I am a cum laude graduate of Rocky Mountain College and received my law degree from the Willamette University College of Law. I was first admitted to practice law in 1996 and am admitted to practice law in Washington State Courts, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, Idaho State Courts, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. I am also a member of the Tacoma-Pierce County Bar Association, the King County Bar Association, the Washington State Association for Justice, the Idaho Trial Lawyers Association, the Tacoma Community Foundation Professional Advisors Network, and the Tacoma Estate Planning Council.


I also serve with the KCBA's Volunteer Attorneys for People with HIV/AIDS, Washington Attorneys Assisting Community Organizations, Washington Lawyers for the Arts, and Lawyers Helping Hungry Children. I am also currently a member of the Board of Directors at Judson Park Retirement Community.
