About me

I strive to provide clients with high quality service in a timely and courteous manner.  My goal is to help you achieve your objective as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.  I worked for 5 years in a civil litigation firm in downtown Seattle, struck out on my own in 2006, and have been in solo practice on Bainbridge Island, where I live with my wife and 4 children, ever since.  I bring "big city" skills to a "small town" practice.  Please feel free to contact me.
