I always knew that I wanted to be an attorney. Not only did the profession interest me, but the opportunity to help people navigate difficult situations motivated me above all else. I've spent 40 years in the industry, and my level of experience, confidence, and ability to problem-solve set me apart. I received my J.D. from Gonzaga University in 1980 with honors, and since then I have been AV Rated by Martindale-Hubbell for more than ten years, named a Top Lawyer by Corporate Counsel Magazine, designated a Senior Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, and helped countless clients come out on the other side of their legal issues stronger and more prepared for the future.
