About me

I spend most of my time helping clients set things right after they have been taken advantage of or injured by people or companies who refuse to take responsibility for their actions or to live up to the agreements they've made.  This is an honor and a privilege, and its why I love being a trial lawyer.


I grew up in Montana working in my family's construction company, and moved to Spokane to attend Gonzaga University. After College I stayed to work as a Transportation Planner with WSDOT until I began practicing law.  I'm glad to call the Inland Northwest my home together with my wife and four children. For the last few years I lived in Grant County but I just recently moved back to Spokane and now our firm has offices in both Grant County and Spokane County. This allows convenient access to our clients throughout Eastern Washington.  When I'm not in court or helping clients, I'm usually riding motorcycles or playing soccer with my kids.
