People don’t visit an attorney for a chat, a lecture about the law, or the nice conference table. They hire an attorney because they have a problem they need solved, and they want it fixed as quickly and inexpensively as possible. That’s my job.
I graduated from the University of Washington Law School, started my legal practice in 2003 at a large firm in Seattle, and served as Skagit County’s Chief Civil Attorney from 2007 to 2014. I’ve represented everything from large multinational corporations to governments to small, local startup businesses.
I learned a good bit along the way, but my most important experiences have come from things other than the law – running a commercial fishing business and food service business, owning and managing real estate, and serving as a military officer. I know what it’s like to be the one making the decisions, signing the checks, and living with the consequences.
If you need a problem solved by someone practical, come see me.
