In my career, I've had the opportunity to learn in depth in many areas of the law. I've worked for a large law firm, as a Prosecutor and in my own practice. I've represented businesses and individuals in real estate, business, personal injury and estate planning. I've both prosecuted and defended individuals accused of major, and minor crimes. I personally founded and operated a Construction business and this Law Firm.
This varied background gives me not only a depth of knowledge, but also a unique perspective in how to most efficiently and effectively represent individuals and businesses.
I believe community service is a duty for people who have the time and energy. I currently serve on the Hillsboro School Board Bond review committee where I can contribute my knowledge about constructing and financing to better our schools. I am a Board member of the Hillsboro Library Foundation, which is committed to supporting literacy and libraries, and which raised one million dollars recently to help fund the new Hillsboro main library. I'm a former member of the Washington County Juvenile Crime Prevention Committee, the Hillsboro Library Board (including two years as its chairperson), Commissioner for the Washington County Commission on Children and Families, and Board member of the Clark County Washington Head Start.
How I Serve My Clients
I like to solve problems and to achieve results. I will review the issue that brought you into my office, analyze all aspects of that issue and develop a plan of action assessing your risks or opportunities. My background in virtually all areas of the law and my business background in owning and operating non-legal businesses, give me a unique perspective that I use to my clients benefit.
