My personal goal is to always recognize the dignity of each client while helping them resolve any legal issue.
I began my legal practice, I worked as a Human Resource Manager for a variety of businesses including a large local heavy manufacturer. Today, I help clients with employment law, elder law, and debtor/creditor issues (including Bankruptcy). I am on the teaching faculty at City University and periodically write for the Vancouver Business Journal. In addition, I put on seminars and workshops in the community.
I am committed to serving in the community, founding the Human Dignity Foundation, the John Paul II Center for Life, organizations that focuses on serving the needs of the elderly and disabled. I am on the Board of Pacific Crest Academy, An active member of St. Thomas Aquinas parish I serve on the Pastoral Council and Chair the Outreach Commission, I also work with many other non-profit organizations.
My husband, Tom, and I have a long haired Chihuahua named Gizmo and a Mini Chocolate Dapple Daschund named Cocoa Bean. Togehter we enjoy camping and I do some video editing for fun.

I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked with Carol on several matters while at the same same firm and while working with different firms. I have referred several long-time clients to Carol for employment and elder law matters and have always received very positive feedback. Carol takes the time to listen to and understand her clients and her caring nature is very evident in her interactions with clients. Carol is a consummate professional and an attorney I would highly recommend.
