How I represent clients at Schwabe

As a litigator, I draw on my background in banking and business to counsel my clients on a wide array of issues. I utilize my practical experience and familiarity with the law to provide constructive solutions to intricate legal concerns.

In law school, I externed for both Judge Mary Jo Heston and Judge Brian Lynch in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Washington. I also externed for the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, where I conducted research in a variety of areas including property law, constitutional law, employment law, and environmental law. In addition, I served as the executive editor of the American Indian Law Journal.

I completed my fall clerkship at Schwabe in the autumn of 2021.
