About me

As a woman and as a member of the LGBT community, I believe all people should be treated fairly and equally regardless of minority status, and understand the unique issues facing members of the LGBT community.  I have a passion for Juvenile Law and over five years experience in both delinquency and dependency proceedings.

In 2012 I worked for the Washington United for Marriage campaign, successfully defending Washington State’s Marriage Equality law at the ballot box.  While I am excited about winning this crucial civil right, I recognize we still have work to do to achieve equality.

I presented at the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association’s annual Juvenile Law seminar in 2009 and 2011 and my run for the Oregon State Senate was fueled by my dissatisfaction with the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

As your lawyer I will work hard to find the strategy or legal issue that has the potential to help you with your case.  I pride myself on persuasive and creative arguments even in cases where the law doesn’t seem to support my client’s position.

I look forward to working with you to resolve your legal case.
