I enjoy working closely with our clients. It allows me to offer better service while building rewarding ‎relationships. ‎


I assist clients in the food and beverage, maritime, and retail industries. I have over 30 years of experience supporting all aspects of litigation, from inception through trial to mediation and arbitration. I work closely with vessel owners, fisheries, insurance companies, restaurants, retail owners, and department stores.

I also assist with case management, hiring experts, investigation, witness preparation, discovery, document review, and management and coordination of arbitrations, mediations, and trials. I provide product liability, personal injury, maritime, premises liability, medical/dental malpractice, asbestos, and general litigation support.

In addition to my litigation work, I help clients in matters before the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, including coordinating and obtaining liquor licenses.
