About me

I have been in practice in Kitsap County for 24 years. I worked as a deputy prosecutor for the Kitsap County Prosecutor in Port Orchard, and then later as a special prosecutor for Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo for several years.  I opened my first office in Bremerton in 1993. I am a trained mediator and have mediated divorce cases and business disputes.  In addition to my law practice I am a musician and I play jazz in local clubs with my band the "Jazz Guys."
