I have devoted my legal career fighting for the rights of individuals who have been hurt by the negligence or intentional actions of others. In law school I worked for a firm dedicated to representing injured clients and workers. I was also a member of the Worker's Rights legal clinic.
After passing the bar and becoming a lawyer I got my start representing clients applying for social security disability where I learned about medical conditions ranging from aches and pains to serious heart conditions and post-traumatic stress to schizophrenia. Since then I've focused on personal injury and motor vehicle accidents, helping people navigate the legal system and get through a tough situation.
I have dedicated my legal career to representing individuals. To guiding ordinary people through an often complicated legal process. To making the process easy to understand. To taking the legal challenges off your plate and allowing you to focus on getting better. It is not the job of a lawyer to make your decisions for you. It is the job of a lawyer to make sure you understand all of your options and all of the risks involved. It is the job of a lawyer to help you make informed choices and then carry them out. A lawyer should be doing everything they can to make the process easier and less stressful for you. I focus on working with you to present the best possible case and getting a result that works for you.
I have lived in the Seattle area for nearly my whole life. I was born and raised in Newcastle and moved to West Seattle after finishing law school. I went to college in Portland. This area always has been and always will be my home. In my free time you'll probably find me watching the Seahawks or the Sounders, making some new recipe for dinner, or tasting every local microbrew that I can find.
