About me

I am a native of the Northwest, having lived in Bremerton, Boise, Moscow and Spokane while growing up. My family moved to Spokane when I was in high school, and I consider Spokane my hometown.  I also spent time in Seattle, both at University of Washington for undergrad and law school, and working in a downtown law firm.  I have been back in Spokane since '97. 


My law practice is geared toward helping individuals, families and small businesses with all aspects of the assets they own. This involves areas of law including real estate, business law, and wills, trusts and estates. I help with purchase and sale transactions, lending, borrowing, leasing/renting, and eventually disposing of assets through wills and trusts. Our clients include homeowners, real estate developers, commercial landlords and tenants, residential landlords, construction contractors, owners associations, and many others.


My firm recently (July 2015) went through a metamorphosis, changing our name to Lucent Law in conjunction with launching a major online platform for fixed-fee legal services called Forms & Essentials. We still offer the services of a traditional law firm, but now we also offer 175+ services online, all clearly and reasonably priced.


My skills as a lawyer have been enhanced by my ventures in other businesses.  I spent about 9 years serving as in-house counsel for my family's real estate development and property management company, adding to my experience in a wide range of real estate and business law areas.  I have also been co-owner of a business that owns several restaurants and a brewery.  I have gained first-hand experience with business matters such as insurance coverage issues, insurance claims handling and employer/employee issues.


When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two beautiful daughters.  I also enjoy bicycling and spending time at Coeur d'Alene Lake in the summer.
