When it comes to what I can offer my clients, it boils down to three things: integrity, experience, and results. I help companies and people solve problems. I tailor my work to the specific needs and budget of my clients.
I have been practicing law for 25 years. I have handled a great variety of cases including, but not limtied to: breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, noncompetition provisions, real property disputes, partnership disputes, corporate dissolutions, property damage, and taxation issues. I focus on clients who are active in Southwest Washington throughout Clark, Skamania, and Cowlitz counties, and beyond.
I have successfully tried many cases in state and federal courts, and I have handled dozens of arbitrations and mediations. I also has extensive experience at the appellate level.
