About Us

My experience and in-depth knowledge of construction, real estate, and commercial law helps clients navigate the complex landscape of the modern business environment.

From complying with detailed and evolving regulations to drawing up precise construction agreements and leases, I am a firm believer in doing things right from the start. I take a proactive, responsive approach to client’s issues which resolves problems before they occur. I help my clients to develop streamlined, successful business operations, minimizing their time spent with legal issues, and get them back to business as fast as possible.

I have over 25 years of professional legal experience, with the majority of work spent in construction, commercial leasing, and real estate. I specialize in public works and private construction projects, in which I advise public entities, commercial contractors, developers, and individuals in all aspects of the construction process.

I am also an experienced and accomplished litigator, negotiator, arbitrator, and mediator. I take a personal, customized approach when working with clients to determine the best strategy for their needs and situation.

My trial experience extends to all areas of my practice. I represent clients in Washington and Oregon state and federal courts before administrative agencies, and in arbitration and mediation. I routinely assist clients with acquisition and sales, development, leasing, and property management. I also regularly help clients form business entities, focusing on protecting their assets as best I can.
