I have been practicing family law since 2001. Over the years I've been a part of many traditional, adversarial divorces. I believe that having a team of collaborative professions who are dedicated to helping divorcing couples explore and reach long term solutions provides couples with a much better alternative for shaping the future of their family. The Collaborative Process provides couples with the freedom and the power to create their own durable agreements about their children and their financial future.
I have been volunteering with the King County Bar Associations Family Law Clinic since 2010. When not "lawyering" I enjoy spending time with my family, reading all manner of science fiction, puttering about in my flowerbeds and garden at home, or trying to catch king salmon in the waters of Cook Inlet Alaska.
