About me

I have been actively engaged in the practice of law in this legal community for 40 years.  My practice is principally commercial dispute resolution, through litigation, arbitration and mediation.  I have tried or arbitrated cases in Washington, California, Alaska, Hawaii, Texas, Florida, and have handled disputes for clients in the United Kingdom, China and Japan.  I have developed a sub-concentration on resolving disputes between lawyers regarding their law practices.  I served on the Foundation Board of Trustees for Western Washington University, I was a national representative for the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), and I am past president of the Columbia Tower Club.  I am a fourth generation Washingtonian, and proud to be a Seattle business practitioner.
