About me

With offices in downtown Portland and downtown Vancouver, I am an Oregon and Washington attorney who actively practices in both states, and is committed to passionate and zealous representation of my clients.

As an Adjunct Professor of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Portland State University, a former case manager for the Oregon Judicial Department, and as Past President of the Clark County Family Law Section, I know that people need a strong and compassionate attorney and counselor to help them navigate through difficult and uncertain times like when they're faced with surviving harm or abuse, a divorce, employment discrimination or wrongful termination, or when their civil and constitutional rights have been violated.  

I am passionate about helping others, and it would be my pleasure to represent you. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
