About me


I am a partner with Morgan James, PLLC.  My law firm primarily represents Plaintiffs in serious accidents, from motor vehicle collisions to premises liability claims and construction site accidents.  Additionally, I continue to serve as defense counsel for a number of clients.  Prior to joining my partner, Kamela James, I served as senior legal counsel at Travelers Insurance as one of its “major case” attorneys, defending Travelers insureds in a variety of catastrophic claims from construction site accidents to wrongful death claims. 

I enjoy hiking, fishing, and rooting for the Mariners and Seahawks.  I also play in an adult baseball league and have done so for the past 15 years.
