About me



I am an attorney at Beckwith Law in Seattle - a law firm that handles only criminal defense. Our office handles all types of cases from complex felonies to simple misdemeanors. I understand that being charged with a criminal offense is a highly stressful time in a person’s life. In working with my clients I strive to explain not only their case, but also the court processes to them in order to reduce some of the stress and anxiety they are experiencing. My goal in any case is to work diligently and aggressively in order to produce the best outcome possible for each client.
