Born and raised in the Seattle area, I started trying cases in 1981 across Washington State. After several years of representing huge corporations and insurance companies in their efforts to keep injured people from receiving proper compensation for their injuries, I realized I was involved in a very negative business. I sympathized with the injured and oppressed. I left one of the largest firms in the U.S. and decided to focus on helping people get all the justice they deserved. For most of my career, my emphasis has been helping people fight against big insurance companies, corporations, and government entities that often prefer to deny an individual a just outcome. With that tradition it is my goal to champion justice for those in need at a reasonable cost.
