About me

I received my B.A. from Pacific Lutheran University (1994) and J.D. from Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & ClarkCollege (1998). I am admitted to both the Washington State Bar and the Oregon State Bar.  Steve Bogdon and I formed Laycoe & Bogdon PC in January 2005.  My practice focuses on family law.  I also practice in the areas of guardianship, estate planning and probate.  I appreciate each opportunity I have to assist clients through some of the most difficult periods in their lives.
