I am dedicated to my family, my clients and my community. I live in Tacoma with my spouse Kathryn and our two young boys. My family worked on the waterfront for decades. I am committed to helping injured workers and their families receive the benefits they deserve, and I also look forward to helping you with your estate planning needs.
You need a zealous advocate and experienced counsel to help you. I look forward to serving you and your family.
