Hello Avvo browsers!  I am a solo practice attorney in the South Seattle area and recent LLM in Elder Law from Seattle University School of Law, first graduate of the newly minted program.  Currently I provide services for estates and matters involving Elder Law and planning.  These are the areas I practice, this is what my office does, and this is my focus for the next 40 years.  You will not find me dabbling in PI work or other areas distracting from services to families and the Elder community.

I strive to provide a more personal experience when clients come to me.  As you will tell from the coaching pictures on my walls or coaching memorabilia, I'm a people's attoreny and not a suit - this is my community and providing services to the people in it is both a job and a prvilege.  Please browse my website, email, or call to ask any questions as to how I can help you today!
