Having grown up in a small town in Alaska, I understand the value of relationships. In my practice, I value establishing long-term relationships with my clients. While we may meet in the context of a dispute, it is my goal to help you resolve that dispute and then work with you to minimize the risk going forward. Over the years I have represented a wide variety of clients, from small contractors to large developers, from family-owned businesses to public corporations. I have represented every party to a construction dispute – owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors and members of the design team. In the commercial context, I have represented numerous small and medium size businesses in a variety of transactional and litigation matters. I am also experienced with bid protests before various state and federal entities.
After practicing in Alaska for 11 years, I moved to Seattle in 2010. I remain connected to Alaska through family, friends and clients. I continue to represent clients in Alaska as I build my practice in Washington. I enjoy all that Seattle has to offer and am thankful to now call it home. As general counsel for my clients, I have helped them address a variety of issues including drafting contracts and employment agreements, non-compete agreements, and employee handbooks.
