About me


I have a decade of experience connecting business and individual clients to the best solutions for their legal problems, whether that's through litigation or self-help remedies. I am licensed in all the federal and state courts in Washington and Idaho, as well as the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.


 


I provide legal assistance in the areas of employment (handbooks, training, wrongful termination, and discrimination), business (entity formation, corporate governance), finance (foreclosures, receiverships), and bankruptcy (business and personal). My clients range from individuals to professional service providers (like dentists), from small single-owner businesses to large regional banks. I utilize technology to better serve clients' needs at times and places that work with their busy schedules.


 


I was the first woman partner at Reed & Giesa. In 2012, I was selected Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year by the Washington State Bar Association. I currently serve as the WSBA President-Elect, the youngest person to ever be chosen for that position and only the 5th woman.
