About me

I focus on employment issues presented to successfull and growing Washington State businesses. These issues include most issues pertaining to the employer/employee relationship.


The most common topics of concern for those who contact me include employment agreements, trade secrets and intellectual property protection, personnel and personality conflict issues between employers and employees, Workers' Compensation, wrongful termination, non-compete agreements, sub contractor status, employment tax assessment issues, as well as anti-discrimination, 


I represent Pacific Northwest workers, owners and operators to reduce and prevent expensive and unnecessary litigation; but if necessary to also fully and effectively litigate any dispute.
