How I represent clients at Schwabe

I serve clients ranging from individuals and closely held businesses to national financial institutions. I have experience litigating in state and federal court, drafting and arguing motions, assisting in all stages of discovery, and seeing cases through trial.

In law school, I gained a unique inside perspective on the workings of federal court when I served as an extern for the Honorable Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta at the United States District Court in Portland. In that role, I researched and drafted opinions on matters involving varied legal issues and observed a wide range of civil proceedings.

I also worked at Schwabe as a Summer Associate in 2015, where I took to heart Schwabe’s unique service philosophy and commitment to excellence.
