About me

I am a member of the firm and the Business and Real Estate Transactions practice group, and a real estate lawyer with extensive experience in transactions and litigation. My clients include commercial and residential purchasers and sellers, lenders, landlords and tenants, title insurance companies and their agents and insureds, brokers and renewable energy developers.


 


I am an experienced title claims counsel, representing title insurance underwriters, agents and their insureds in resolving title disputes. 


 


I also have significant experience representing wind energy developers nationally in closing acquisition, disposition, equity participation and debt transactions.


 


Before returning to private practice, I managed a national title services office for an international title underwriter that issues title policies and closes commercial transactions throughout the country. I also served as a member of the Washington Land Title Association’s Executive Committee and as chair of its Judiciary Committee. I have represented the WLTA before the Washington State Supreme Court as amicus curiae in several landmark decisions involving the land title industry.
