My experience with a wide and diverse array of complicated cases in government and in private practice helps me craft timely and practical solutions that rapidly resolve cases.

I draw on more than 20 years of legal experience — including 13 years of distinguished service at the Oregon Department of Justice — in serving clients efficiently, effectively and economically. Whether I am protecting the rights of heirs and devisees, preserving the reputations and future earning ability for licensed professionals, or strategically resolving complex construction and real estate disputes, my clients’ future remains my top priority.
