have been practicing law for over twenty five years representing
individuals and businesses. I have assisted them with conflict
resolution, business, real estate, probate and estate planning.
I have drafted marital and relationship agreements and litigated
divorce, domestic violence and custody matters. After years of
litigating cases in court I have made the conscious choice to help
clients resolve their conflicts outside of court.
I represent clients working towards solutions to family law matters,
business, real estate, probate and estate planning. I consult and
coach clients participating in mediation. I serve as a neutral
mediator for individuals and those represented by counsel. I am
invested in clients who are invested in solutions.
I am a member of the Washington State Bar Association, the American Bar
former Co-Chair of the Collaborative Law Section of the King County Bar
Association. I am former Chair of the Civil Practice Group of King County
Collaborative Law. I am a member of the International Academy
Collaborative Professionals and King County Collaborative Law. I am
an active member of the community and provide volunteer legal
services. I received my law degree from Seattle University and my
undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan. I am a trained mediator, including professional certification with the University of Washington School of Law and training with the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University School of Law.
Committed to clients who want solutions
