Whether it is estate planning, probate, tax issues or a bankruptcy matter it is important to hire an attorney you have confidence in and trust. It is not a decision that you should take lightly. I feel that my clients should know a little about me before deciding to have me represent them.
I was born and raised in the Everett area. I grew up in a typical middle class family where both the parents worked to support the family. I attended Mariner High School and graduated in 1981. After a short enlistment in the Army I enrolled at the University of Washington where I earned a bachelors degree from the School of Business in 1986. I worked a few years at Boeing then left to pursue my legal education. I received my law degree from Gonzaga University in 1992 and continued my legal education at the University of Florida. I graduated in 1993 with a master's degree in tax law.
