I am a personal injury and wrongful death attorney. My mission is to achieve the best possible outcome for every client.
Although my plan was to become a physician, I decided to change my career path as a result of injuries I suffered on the job. While I finished my undergraduate degree at the University of Washington, I worked as a carpenter. On October 10, 2002, a roofing subcontractor's negligence caused me to fall approximately 20 feet, leaving me wheelchair bound for two years.
I contacted approximately eighty local attorneys all of whom rejected my case. After agreeing to personally work on my case, a local attorney took me on as a client. I worked on my case for two years, underwent a defense deposition and was subjected to a defense medical examination. Two months before trial, my case settled for $1,000,000.
My physical and emotional recovery gave me a real life perspective on the struggles faced by injured persons and motivated me to become a personal injury and wrongful death attorney.
I am lucky enough to say that I have recovered and that my injuries probably led to me meeting my wife. I love advocating for individuals and families who are in the position I once found myself.
