My practice focuses on advising clients on issues involving real estate, land use, business formation, estate planning and administration, and environmental law. Having grown up in the Spokane area, I understand the types of problems my clients face on a daily basis and draw on my experience working in the field of natural resources management to provide effective legal solutions.

After graduating from Gonzaga Prep in 2007, I pursued a first career as a marine biologist. In the decade that followed, I worked as a PhD scientist for the Department of Interior and Spokane County’s Water Resources Program before making the transition into the practice of law.

I graduated from Gonzaga Law School’s Executive J.D. program, a two-year track focused on supplementing the traditional law school curriculum with business and leadership courses. True to its Jesuit origins, my experience at Gonzaga Law helped train me to not only be an effective advocate for my clients, but also a life-long student of the law as it evolves with technological and societal change.

As a lawyer I don’t get to spend as much time outdoors as I did as a marine biologist, but I greatly enjoy putting my scientific mind to work on behalf of my clients. Every case is different and as the Spokane community continues to grow, property rights are in high demand. My simple goal is to help clients navigate what can be a complicated and sometimes stressful process to reach a positive outcome.
