How I represent clients at Schwabe

I help my clients, throughout many Oregon industries, litigate business disputes and resolve succession issues. My clients range from large businesses asserting rights related to commercial property, trustees, or personal representatives and beneficiaries asserting rights under succession and estate plans. As a third-generation Oregonian, I have a deep appreciation for the role my clients play in the state’s economy and growth.

I pride myself on being a creative, efficient, and detail-oriented litigator with experience in Oregon’s courts at all levels, as well as alternative dispute resolution venues. I apply my varied experiences to tailor a cost-effective resolution path to each of my client’s goals.
