My practice is diverse. I enjoy helping clients prevent or navigate problems in estate planning, probate, real estate, elder law and business matters. I also handle family law with a particular emphasis on couples that own small businesses, real estate holdings and high asset dissolutions.
Things I do:
Contract Drafting and Disputes
Probate and Elder Law
Real Estate Contracts and Disputes
Business Formation, Governance and Disputes
Why I do them:
Every problem has a solution. My job is to understand my clients' circumstances and to prevent problems or orchestrate solutions in a cost effective manner. I address client matters from a broad base of legal and business experience, with a healthy dose of common sense. If your case must go to trial to get an equitable resolution under the law, I am ready, willing and able to do so.
Prior to becoming an attorney I had a 21 year career in construction, real estate, consulting and management. I have had to find and hire attorneys with my own money. It is never far from my mind what a hassle it can be to find a competent attorney who "gets it" and works efficiently to solve problems. That experience provides me with a unique insight into how to deliver legal services in a way that is both effective and understandable to my clients.
Where I Practice:
My clients' matters have taken me to Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania, Pierce, Thurston, Snohomish, Yakima, Lewis, Lincoln, Pacific, Klickitat, Kitsap, Spokane and Chelan Counties in Washington State.
