Summary

I am licensed to practice law in both Oregon and Washington. I am also admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon, the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. I am the parent of three boys, one of whom has special needs. All three of them attended public schools. I understand both the joy and heartache that come with the gift of these special children. As a lawyer, I have the unique opportunity to help your child in ways that make a real difference over the child's entire life. I view my work as an investment in your child's future. My work immediately impacts your child's education. That impact helps shape and direct the rest of your child's educational experience. My philosophy is simple - "The child is the client." I remain focused on the child's needs and legal entitlements. I uses my background and experience in both education law and special needs parenting to help parents solve their child's education issues. While my specialty is the law for children with special needs, I also represent children with education issues not related to special education. I can provide help with almost any educational issue, including discipline hearings for suspension or expulsion.
