Biography

My practice has been focused on criminal defense since 2003. I have experience at every stage of proceedings from the first court appearance through trial.

In addition to the years of practice and dozens of jury trials, I served as a Deputy Public Defender and still regularly accept court-appointments to represent those clients who are unable to afford private representation.

Before practicing law, I worked in the telecommunications sector in the mobile phone industry and later for one of Washington State's first internet service businesses.
