By constantly tracking new legislation, I help schools comply with the daily pressures of continuously changing laws.

My clients depend on me to know and understand the intricate details of the constantly evolving laws that regulate everyday life in Oregon schools. I often minimize exposure for my clients through strategic planning, comprehensive training and thorough investigations. If litigation is unavoidable, I carefully guide my clients through the trial process to preserve their interests every step of the way.
