About me

I have been in private practice since 1967, serving the South Sound area with a focus on elder law, estate planning and the needs of local businesses and families. My true joy in practicing law comes from building long term relationships with my clients so that I can be there for them and their families for many years to come. I am now serving many fourth generation clients.


I am extremely passionate about our community and have been an active member of many local service organizations for decades.


I am an avid collector military history memorabilia and artifacts with items spanning many wars and conflicts, dating back to the Civil War. My clients and staff frequently tease me about my office being more of a museum than an office.
