I have been practicing law in Western Washington since 1997. Since my first day of practice my area of emphasis has been DUI law. My first few years of practice were as a Prosecuting Attorney then in 2001 I moved to private practice representing those accused of the crime. Since 2004 I have only practiced this DUI and Criminal Defense. My knowledge in this area is immense and has been helped by my work in completing more than DUI books including, "The DUI Handbook for the Accused" in 2007. I have two more books being printed in 2009, "The DUI Handbook for Lawyers" and "Driving Under the Influence-A Brief History" and the "Whatcom County DUI Handbook" and "Skagit County DUI Handbook" among others. I believe in thorough and aggressive representation of my clients. I also believe that our representation goes beyond just the court appearances and DOL hearings. We help to facilitate alcohol evaluations, treatment or alcohol classes (whichever is deemed necessary), the DUI Victim's Panel, and any else that may be required. It is my staff's objective to make this process as smooth as it can possibly be. Experience. Knowledge. Aggressive Representation. These are the cornerstones of my practice.
