About me


I joined our firm in 2006 as a clerk during law school, and became an associate attorney in 2007.  I was made a partner in the firm in 2010.  I've successfully represented clients in a variety of different types of injury cases, including auto collisions, premises liability (falls, etc.), animal attacks, watercraft accidents, and construction site injuries.  Along with my Partner Craig Schauermann, I argued and won before the Washington State Supreme Court (Weismann v. Safeco, 2012) an important case expanding protections for auto insurance consumers in Washington.

I've volunteered time for the past several years at the Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Housing Justice Project, advising residential tenants about their rights and obligations.  I've previously served on the new member and membership committees for the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ), and have acted as chair and co-chair of the WSAJ Clark County Roundtable.  I'm a member of the Washington State Bar Association and the Clark County Bar Association, and an Eagle member of the Washington State Association for Justice.  I'm admitted to practice in all Washington and Oregon state courts, as well as in federal court in Oregon, and Washington's Western District. 

I was born and raised in Vancouver, attending Vancouver public schools and graduating from Hudson’s Bay High School.  I enjoy playing recreational basketball and softball, skiing, and spending time with my wife and three children.
