About me

I'm a lifelong resident of Vancouver, Washington.   My practice is focused on plaintiff's personal injury law. Focusing on personal injury law allows us to dedicate our time and resources in getting the best results for our clients.  Before becoming an attorney, I was an on-scene investigator and paralegal for a local Vancouver law firm whose practice focused on criminal defense and personal injury law.  My office has recovered in excess of $1,000,000.00 for our clients.

 I've found many of our clients initally try to handle their claims themselves but get worried when:  expensive medical bills pile up, they don't know who's paying what, they don't understand the terminology, the insurance company is demanding they go see "their doctor"  and are receiving very low "offers" of settlement.  A cloud of concern sets in. 

Brief insight into Legal Philosophy -  I never use the term "accident" when it comes to addressing people who've suffered personal injuries. The word accident suggests a situation occurred that simply couldn't be avoided. While unfortunate, "you can't blame this on me" and "that's life" or "stuff happens."

However, the truth of the matter is a person's injuries were caused, not due to some accident, but because the at-fault party was NEGLIGENT and failed to exercise simple ordinary care. I urge anyone to keep this in mind when addressing your injury claims.  This was no accident. You're injuries were caused due to the negligence of another. The law provides an injured party is entitled to money to compensate him / her for personal injuries. 

I do not practice law to intimidate, bluff, or cause fear against an adversary.  If you think you're going to hit a "home run" by attempting to scare or insert fear into a multi-billion dollar insurance company, I urge you to think again. Personal injury cases are resolved by persuasive advocacy, addressing weaknesses head-on, and on the facts and strenghts of the case. Certainly, at times, parties cannot agree and a trial is warranted. 

If you've been injured in a: motor vehicle collision, dog attack, pedestrian / crosswalk, bicycle / motorcycle collision, please give my office a call at 360-600-9959. I will speak with you about your case and address the issues with you at no cost or obligation. We handle all personal injury matters on a contingency fee basis. If my office doesn't recover money in regards to your claim, there is no attorney fee.
