About me

I am dedicated to advocating for the rights of injured people.  My focus is medical negligence, which I have practiced for over 35 years.  As a detail-oriented advocate, I  enjoy learning about advances in medicine, as well as working with highly credentialed expert physicians nationwide.  When I am not working, I can be found at the local gym, cycling, or hiking in beautiful Washington State.
