Client Service

As an athlete growing up, I learned that the keys to success on the court were preparation for the task at hand and communication with my teammates. I view my litigation practice through the same lens.

Efficient and effective preparation for a case requires attention to detail and skills in information gathering. I strive to master the relevant facts of each unique situation so as to best counsel my clients regarding strategy and potential risks.

I understand that new information or issues arise throughout a case, oftentimes without warning. As a result, open communication is hugely important to ensuring that litigation strategy stays on track, minimizing client exposure and costs. I am committed to being available and accessible to my clients.

Personal

I spend my free time with my friends and family, including my mischievous cat, Duke. I enjoy all things entertainment-related. If I’m not in a theater seeing the newest blockbuster, I am probably searching for a local concert. Prior to taking the bar exam here in Oregon, I spent my free time “acting” as an extra in a few Portland-based television shows (yes, Portlandia and Grimm) in order to get my entertainment fix.
