About me

My practice is geared toward serving as strategic counsel for businesses and providing innovative solutions tailored to my client's special interests and needs. My focus is primarily on securities offerings, corporate finance and mergers & acquisitions.  Serving so many clients in their everyday business matters, my practice also involves a good deal of contract work.  


As a member of the Corporate Securities Group at Stanislaw Ashbaugh, LLP, I focus on bringing my clients cost-effective, creative and efficient solutions to their business problems, as well as helping negotiate and close the deals necessary to make their businesses succeed.  


Essentially, my business is making your business work.   


In addition, I teach Contracts at the University of Washington as a part time guest professor.
