About me

Having worked in the legal field for 23 years (15 as an attorney) in a number of different areas including family law, criminal defense, personal injury/medical malpractice, complex commercial litigation, Wills and estate planning, probate, and guardianship, I am very experienced and have devoted my professional life to tough advocacy for and compassionate counsel of my clients. I am committed to providing thorough and effective representation  to protect my clients’ rights and interests, to resolve matters in the least litigious and most cost effective manner when possible, and to take an aggressive stand as my clients’ advocate when litigation (e.g., trial) becomes inevitable.  I endeavor to treat every case as if it were my own.  I am available for representation in all Western Washington counties.
