Experienced And Passionate Advocate.
I was born in London, England and my family immigrated to Portland, Oregon when I was a baby and that is where I was raised. I have lived almost my entire life in the Northwest.
I have 3 children and I enjoy all aspects of living in this region, especially the outdoors and proximity to the beach and the mountains. I enjoy bicylce riding and hiking.
I have coached high school mock trial for a number of years for a small school in Vancouver and I volunteer for the Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Housing Justice Project.
I have worked with each of my partners for over 20 years and we often roundtable our cases to get the best results. While I fight hard for my clients in trial, I also enjoy the cordial and respectful atmosphere among the lawyers and judges in Vancouver. I think it is a good place to work.
