How I represent clients at Schwabe

I counsel on employment matters in the healthcare and life sciences and consumer product, manufacturing, and retail industries. With my clients’ success as my top priority, I work urgently to understand their legal needs and provide sound legal counsel to pursue the best outcomes possible.

I bring a deep understanding of effective advocacy to my practice, having served for five years as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable U.S. Magistrate Judge Youlee Yim You in the District of Oregon.

During law school, I was Editor-in-Chief of the Lewis & Clark Law Review.
